Children and Young People booklist for October 2018

Spine-tinglers

This month we have selected our favourite Spine-tinglers and Spooky Stories.

What does ‘spine-tingling’ mean to you?

Often we first of all think ‘scary’ – something that will make us shiver with fear – but something spine-tingling could equally give us shivers of laughter or thrills of pleasure!

‘Very special and exciting’ is another definition, and in this pack for your Chatterbooks reading group there are lots of different books with stories that are scary, absorbing, funny, or fantastic – all of them with something special.

You can find out more about some of our picks on the Summer Reading Challenge news page.

There is also a Chatterbooks pack based upon this booklist.

We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
