Getting back to the right holiday

Yesterday, I did a post about a Christmas book… and yes, it’s horrible, Christmas is set upon us already when it’s multiple holidays away. So let me get back to the appropriate holiday for AAUGHtober. That’s right, let’s talk about Halloween… 2018.

Coming out for that holiday are two new books. One is a “Deluxe Edition” adaptation of the animated TV special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown , the other a storybook called Happy Halloween, Charlie Brown! Both drop in July, just when you’re really getting into that Halloween mood.

Don’t worry… I’ll get back to Christmas tomorrow.
