The nights are drawing in and there's a spooky chill in the air, so we've invited top twitterer Danny Pearson and his puggy companion Jess to review their favourite Halloween read for us!

"From the brains which brought you the massively successful Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam picture books comes the first in a new series of two-colour fiction titles. 

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Spooky School contains three hilarious read-aloud stories. The Spooky SchoolThe Wacky Weather Week and Trouble at the Museum.

Our heroes don’t just make wonderful cakes. They also solve wacky and downright crazy mysteries too. The first of the stories, The Spooky School, is a perfect 
Halloween bedtime read. Halloween at St Spectre’s school will grip young readers as our dynamic duo go on the hunt to find who, or what, is behind the mysterious ghost dog.

The other two stories in this title are equally as thrilling. Readers will be flying through the pages wanting to follow Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam as they go on their adventures. 
Why is the weather going crazy? Who is the mysterious power-grabbing red panda and what are those racoons up to in the local museum?

These beautifully created fiction tales of the much loved pair of pooches is ideal for growing children’s confidence as they move from picture books to longer, independent reads." - Danny Pearson
