Scary Godmother by Jill Thompson, read by Angie, on 06/03/2013

Scary Godmother is a wonderful graphic novel all about Halloween. In the first story Hannah meets her Scary Godmother on her very first Halloween outing. She learns that monsters aren’t that scary and can be your friends and she develops a deep appreciation and love for Halloween and everything that goes along with it. I adored the illustrations of this book. I thought they definitely enhanced the text and were really the story of the book. Scary Godmother is a fantastic character. I loved the chapter where she got the boo flu and Hannah had to get everything ready for Halloween. Each chapter is its own story but they all go together very well. My only quibble, and it is a minor one, is that the chapters represent five Halloweens but Hannah doesn’t really appear to age at all. Other than that I think the stories are delightful.
