Saw This And Thought It Was Cool

A sort of Halloween-y one for you book lovers out there!

Penguin has released this beautiful hardback of stories retold by the wonderful Philip Pullman just in time for Halloween, and apart from the absolutely gorgeous cover (seriously, I can’t stop looking at it) it caught my eye because of the content – classic stories from folklore and some lesser known scary tales are presented in the book along with an introduction by the author.

It’s worth checking out the book’s page on the Penguin website as there are some goodies on there such as audio clips of Pullman reading excerpts and paper animations too.  You know I love scary stuff, and I think that cautionary tales from folklore are a great addition to any library, whether you’re 8 or 88 – everyone loves a good scare, don’t they?

Have a spooky Halloween!
