Halloween as seen through the eyes of Minerva the chicken, who has no idea what it is. I rather liked it, but then my son used to bring his stuffed chicken everywhere he went. 🐓

I have heard of bowl cuts, but pumpkin cuts? 😂 Some of the “facts” in this book were questionable, such as this one and one stating that witches “poured bat blood on themselves” (if anyone has heard of these let me know). At least most of the art was cute. #TeamStoker

Extremely good and thorough look at folklore related to vampires and burial practices. He looks at what they believed, and what was the truth and likely causes of what was reported as having been seen. Multiple translations of reports from the times done by the author. All written with a dry wit that keeps it very readable. #TeamStoker

It‘s Halloween! Tim Curry is coming over to get ready to jump with me! Jimmy Carter helped us punching pumpkins, & now Heath Ledger & I are going to put them in the cafe. We are full after eating anchovies, & are ready to go now! Tom Felton told us to watch out for the Eiffel Tower down the street because it‘s scary with roly poly webs & broken boxes. It‘s the house where Sam Smith & Wil Ferrel live!
