How Bewitching! 13 Best Books About Autumn and Halloween

13 of 14
Halloween children's book, Roald Dahl Ghost Stories

Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories by Roald Dahl

Recommended age: 12 and up

Roald Dahl sure had good taste in ghost stories! The beloved children's book author read more than 700 chilling and thrilling stories in the British Museum Library before selecting the 14 that appear in this anthology. Edith Wharton, Robert Aickman, and other great authors penned the short stories, so the collection is a nice — and spine-tingling — introduction to serious literature for younger teens.
