As a child I grew up reading halloween themed books, like Goosebumps to the I Spy Spooky Night riddle book. Reading them make my love for Halloween and all things spooky grow throughout the years. Recently, Saira Rao from In This Together Media gave me the opportunity to read an advance copy of a Halloween themed book called, "Kat McGee and The Halloween Costume Caper" by Kristin Riddick. I have never come across the Kat McGee series before, so I'm glad I received this chance to check out this book. "Mrs. Claus and The School Of Christmas Spirit" was the first book in the Kat McGee adventures series, where Christmas was in danger and only Kat McGee could save this jolly holiday. In this all new book, Kat must help save Halloween! Check out the description below!
"Halloween is Kat McGee's day.
She may feel like a loser the rest of the year, but come the season of trick-or-treating, costume contests, hay mazes, and haunted houses, Kat reigns supreme. No one in Totsville, Maine can bob a better apple or carve a more perfect pumpkin.
But now the mysterious Dr. S is threatening to take Kat's day away. Dr. S hates Halloween as much as Kat loves it. Kat's in a panic over the holiday ban in Totsville when grandmotherly magic transports her to the wondrous city of Treatsville, where Halloween costumes live all year long-- and where the key to saving Halloween in Totsville just might lie.
But Treatsville is being menaced, too. Costumes are disappearing, and the Halloween magic is going with them. It's up to Kat to help. Aided by the sugary-sweet spells of good witch Dolce, her sidekick owl DeLeche, and Kat's best costumes ever--Jujitsu Princess and Candy Cane Witch-- Kat must face down haunted forests, cruel tests, and the blackest magic the evil Snaggletooth can throw at her. She'll learn lessons about sharing the Halloween glory-- and learning to feel like a winner on every day, not just Halloween. "
While reading this book I came across this lovely quote that instantly got me hooked, "Kat McGee was hopelessly devoted to All Hallow's Eve." From this moment on I knew I could connect with the main character, Kat McGee. Not to mention she is a grand champion trick-or-treater, visits haunted houses, creates her own halloween costumes instead of going for the most popular costume of the year, etc. What's not to love? Reading this book brought back my memories of my elementary school days to trick-or-treating and Halloween school parades. Though we never had costume contests at my school though, jealous about that part. Haha.
Overall, Kat McGee was an adorable book, even the illustrations on the cover is full of cuteness. It was a spooktacular delight from start to finish. I didn't want this Halloween adventure end. I had a lot of fun reading it and loved how it teleported me back to my memories of spending Halloween time in my childhood. Though this book is aimed for middle grade, I can see it as a book for all ages. Especially for those who are kids at heart.
