Meg and Mog by Helen Nicoll and Jan Pienkowski is one of our favourite Halloween books. It was given to the boys at a Halloween party last year and it has been enjoyed many times since.
Meg the witch is getting ready for the spell party. After putting on her black stockings, shoes, cloak and hat she makes an interesting breakfast using 3 eggs, bread, cocoa, a kipper, milk and jam.
“She put it all in her cauldron and stirred it up
There was plenty of breakfast for everyone”
Meg then flies up the chimney with Mog and joins her friends for the spell party. They each add something to the cauldron and chant the spell.
“Frog in a big
Bat in a hat
Snap crackle pop
And fancy that”
A flash and a bang later the spell is complete but it didn’t go according to plan. Meg will have to try again “next Hallowe’en”.
This fun Halloween story is complemented by bold and colourful illustrations.
We recommend reading Meg and Mog this Halloween (and next Halloween)!
