Halloween is, by far, my favorite time of year. I mean come on, what’s not to like? Halloween has it all as far as I’m concerned—calorie-laden candy, itchy costumes, goofy pumpkins, and parties that involve all of the above. And there’s that whole fall foliage/apple cider thing that I groove on in a big bad way.
So, naturally, I have to write as many Halloween picture books as I can. And, naturally, my agent has to inform me that maybe, just maybe, I should try something a little different.
Okay, so I’ll try something “new.” Maybe I’ll writea Halloween chapter book next. But in the meantime, I will be reading WHERE’S MY MUMMY?, about a Little Baby Mummy looking for his Big Mama Mummy, to as many Halloween-loving kids as I can.
This book is perfect for the littlest trick-or-treaters. Both John and I tried not to make the book too scary. And let me just say that John Manders has, once again, created an appealing main character readers will adore. I want to squeeze his cute little mummy tummy! (Um, Little Baby Mummy’s, that is, not John’s.)
