Title: “Skeleton for Dinner” 

Author: Margery Cuyler 

Illustrator: Will Terry 

Age: Preschool through third grade 

Big witch and little witch brew a stew for dinner. It’s so yummy that they decide to share it with their friends.  

When Skeleton comes along and thinks they want to eat him and their friends, he runs and hides. Skeleton takes Ghost and Ghoul with him to save them all. Finally, Crow helps them learn it was all just a misunderstanding, and they all come together and share a meal.  

This is such a cute, loveable Halloween story for kids. Friends might misunderstand what’s being said. They get scared and run away. In the end, they resolve the problem to gather together for a fun meal and lots of laughter.  

“Skeleton for Dinner” is the newest addition to the children’s Halloween section at the library.   

Title: “Kingdom of the Cursed”

Reading Level: Adult 

In this highly-anticipated sequel for “Kingdom of the Wicked,” Emilia Di Carlo, a shadow witch, has finally made it to Hell. She made her deal with Pride to avenge her twin sister; however, the deal seems to be fabricated.  

She is told she is to stay in the House of Wrath until it’s time for Pride to collect her. Staying in the House of Wrath means she will have to continue seeing the challenging Prince of Wrath.  

Will she come to understand everything is not as it first appears, or will she continue to believe in illusions and falsehoods? 

This newest release from Kerri Maniscalco is an adult supernatural romance. The previous book in the series is a YA novel. This novel is considered “new adult” because of the mature themes and content. This series is perfect for readers who like a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
