The Haunted House by Kazuno Kohara is a perfect choice I thought for today! Plus it is a perfect book. Limited colour palette and stunning composition - not a long story either so perfect for a bedtime read. We've read it the last few nights and Stanley is really enjoying making ghost sounds throughout the book. The illustrations are lino cut and then the beautiful little ghosts are made from tissue paper - so simple, yet so very effective.

Happy Halloween to you all! And please go out and get this book or borrow it from the library - it really is a visual treat, no trick in site!
