Gustavo, the Shy Ghost
By Flavia Z. Drago, £6.99
This utterly charming tale follows Gustavo, a shy ghost who more than anything, wants to make a friend. So, plucking up all his courage, he sends a very special letter: Dear Monsters, I would like to invite you to my violin concert at the Day of the Dead party... This book is a ghoulishly glorious read for all!
The Primrose Railway Children
By Jacqueline Wilson, £10.99
The Primrose Railway Children is a gorgeous, heartwarming story of family secrets and new adventures. The story follows Phoebe Robinson who loves making up stories - just like her wonderful, imaginative Dad who mysteriously disappears.
By David Walliams, £11.99
From bestselling phenomenon David Walliams and iconic illustrator Tony Ross, Megamonster is set on a volcanic island, in the middle of shark-infested waters where The Cruel School stands. The lessons are appalling, the school dinners are revolting and the teachers are terrifying.
By Janet & Allen Ahlberg, £6.99
The Funnybones books are a must for children just starting to learn to read - but do not fear, these funny skeletons are definitely not the scary sort!
This book is an all-year-round classic but particularly great for October for some spooktacular fun.
Kay's Marvellous Medicine: A Gross and Gruesome History of the Human Body
By Adam Kay, £14.99
From Ancient Egypt to the present day, this book presents a hilariously horrid history of medicine through the ages, describing everything from wee drinking to why hairdressers would cut off their customers' legs.
