This collection contains a great variety of Halloween tales from Newbery Award-winning authors. Read The Baddest Witch in the World by Beverly Cleary, or The Ghost in the Attic by Eleanor Estes, for some fun and heartwarming tales. If you are interested in a little bit scarier tale, follow Lynn and Mouse as they rid a witch by casting a spell of their own in Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's, The Witches Eye.

Hank Zipzer tries to do the right thing, but somehow it always ends up wrong. For example, at the start of fourth grade, his teacher assigns a 5-paragraph essay on, 'What I did on my summer vacation.' Since reading and writing are difficult for him, Hank decides to recreate Niagara Falls for his class, 'bring Niagara Falls into the classroom, water and all.' This 'living essay' leads to a flood, and of course, chaos ensues, landing Hank in detention, and grounded the week of the school's magic show. Can he convince his parents to let him perform in the show?
Similar books: Look for other titles in the Hank Zipzer, the Mostly True Confessions of the World's Best Underachiever series.
