Suggested Reads for All Hallows Read 2015

You may have heard of All Hallows Read; the initiative was started in 2011, to give children books instead of sweets and candy for Halloween. This brand new Halloween tradition has been fairly well received in many circles with lots of people getting involved and Harper Collins, in conjunction with All Hallows Read have just launched their suggested list for the 2015 event.

There’s a stack of suggestions for all ages, but first we start with the featured books for this year and they are as follows.

The Sleeper and the Spindle – Neil Gaiman

You can find the rest of the official All Hallows Read list here, and we finish with a Reading Addicts suggestion, another Gaiman and a favourite of my own children as they were growing up.

The Wolves in the Walls – Neil Gaiman

Lucy can hear noises. What will happen when the wolves come out of the wall? My children used to love this book, although it’s truly terrifying for little ones!
