Synopsis: A scary story for Halloween from James Howe's book, Bunnicula. In this story, told by Harold, the dog, the animals get a scare on Halloween night when a real witch enters the house and begins stirring up a brew that threatens Bunnicula's life. In the end, the strange happenings are explained but the terror is not forgotten. A good read aloud during Halloween and appealing reading for fans of Howe's other books.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you donít have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
