Countdown to Halloween!

Upcoming releases

When is the right time for a countdown to Halloween? You’d think it would be now, but no… it’s July 20th of next year.

The book contains 31 presumably-brief tales, one for each day of October.  This one is targeted to humans 6 to 8 years old, but I’m ordering a copy anyway. Don’t rat me out!

Also coming next year are the storybooks A Snoopy Tale and When Snoopy Met Woodstock, both due August 24, and both listed as being based on The Snoopy Show, the new animated Peanuts series that will be streaming on Apple TV+ by that time.
