Today’s Halloween book is Extreme Halloween: The ultimate Guide to Making Halloween Scary Again by Tom Nardone. Here’s what it’s about:
From baking hemorrhaging desserts to burying family and friends alive, the outrageous projects in this guide will inspire readers to transform the house, the yard, the kids, and the wardrobe for the scariest Halloween ever. Some of the spooky ideas include: Alligator in the Leaf Pile, Toilet Bowl of Candy, Fog Your Yard, Buried Alive, Turning a Garage into a Haunted House, A Cake that Bleeds, Costumes to Disturb and Amuse. For any fan of Halloween, this extreme celebration will spook, inspire, and help freak out the neighbors.
This is a fun book for older kids. My favorite ideas were the pumpkin sculptures. I won’t try any of the ideas this year, but will keep this book in mind for future Halloweens. In fact, I liked the ideas so much that I’ve put the book on my to buy list.
