Halloween Mask Boooooks!
Get ready for Halloween with Littlebat's Halloween Story by Diane Mayr and by creating your own boootiful Halloween mask book – or is it a book mask? Folded papers, a stick and lots of colors and collage. A book for
stories! A mask for trick or treats! And a Halloween ghost book, too!
Spooky Stories, Creepy Creations
What do you think makes a story really scary? Is it monsters, strange sounds, or a dark and stormy night? How will you become the hero or heroine of your story? Begin by writing a funny, silly, spooky, scary story for Halloween. Visit MCBA’s studios to construct a creepy little book to put it in, then share your creation with family and friends while having some tasty Halloween treats!

Create Your Own Magical World
Explore the timeless territory of magic! First, imagine a hair-raising adventure for your hero or heroine, setting out on a magical journey to save a troubled world and encountering menacing villains and mystical beings along the way. Invent your own setting, characters and plot. Then bring your magical world to life in a handmade pop-up book!
