Hey there FRIGHTS FOR TYKES readers, it’s been awhile! I apologize for not being in touch the past few weeks; things have been kind of overwhelming in my life. Thankfully, I have a beach near my home that has alleviated much of my anxiety.
It’s true: when I’m not writing about spooky and scary children’s books, I’m most probably beachcombing – a simple, soothing hobby in which one meanders along the shore in search of treasure. Beachcombing is a lot like the book I’ll be recommending today, as it requires you to look closely… so you can find the wonders hidden just below your nose. The book is I SPY SPOOKY NIGHT: A BOOK OF PICTURE RIDDLES with photographs by Walter Wick and riddles by Jean Marzollo.
In I SPY SPOOKY NIGHT, the reader explorers the rooms and grounds of a “spooky” haunted house, all the while looking to solve its visual riddles. When I was a kid, this was my favourite book in the I SPY series and returned to it numerous times as I grew up. Not too long ago, I was rummaging through a box of discarded Halloween books at a library sale and spied a copy, which I had to grab (along 30 other children’s books). A week later, while leafing through my acquisitions, I noticed that the edition I bought was from the STRONG MUSEUM OF PLAY, which was always my favourite.
I SPY SPOOKY NIGHT: A BOOK OF PICTURE RIDDLES can be bought on AMAZON for $5.23, plus free shipping, used, in “Good” condition.
I SPY SPOOKY NIGHT is chock full of (creepy) treasure waiting to be discovered. Leave your real-world fears at the gate and enter the world of SPOOKY NIGHT…if you dare.
