and I'm back!

Sorry for the long hiatus. I'm back and ready to read.

Our latest fav is Hogula:Dread pig of night by Jean Gralley. Hogula lives on top of Grimy Pork Chop Hill with his faithful servants; Chad ,a Frankenstein's monster type whose vocabulary consists of "Uhhhhhhh," and Igoretta, a tiny red-head with a big nose and (at least when I read it aloud) a voice to rival Fran Drescher's. But the Pig of Darkness is lonely and wants a friend. So the ever helpful Igoretta sends him to the Princes Mall (get it?) to meet people. The problem is, Hogula really wants to snort everyone into sleepy oblivion. How can a pig make friends while he's denying his inner urges with every fiber of his being? Enter Elvis Ann, who has a secret of her own. Part vampire tale, part Cinderella, this is great Halloween fun.

Even though the book is 10 years old, it's still in print! How awesome is that? We should add a copy to our "scary" book collection this year. While it's not One Witch (Little Brother's all-time fav and total comfort book) it's a keeper!
