How Bewitching! 13 Best Books About Autumn and Halloween

7 of 14
Halloween children's book, Room on the Broom

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson

Recommended age: 4 and up

What's a witch to do on a windy night when her hat and wand blow away? She gets some generous help from some new animal friends — a cat, a parrot, and a frog — who only want one thing in return: a ride on her broom... if there's room! Together, the witch and her friends come face-to-face with a scary dragon. Never fear — the story is by the same author/illustrator team as the fun book The Gruffalo, so you can expect a silly and not-too-spooky ending.
