Pittsburgh Authors and Illustrators for Halloween

We're so proud of our local authors and illustrators.

Two Pittsburghers have new books out, just in time for Halloween.

Where's My Mummy? --written by Carolyn Crimi and illustrated by Pittsburgher John Manders-- is a spooky (and funny!) bedtime story. Little Baby Mummy meets many mysterious neighbors in a late-night game of hide and seek. John Manders' illustrations show us the silly side of the creepy creatures Little Baby Mummy meets. Manders makes Little Baby Mummy's wrapped-up face sweetly expressive, and Big Mama Mummy has got to be the prettiest mommy in all the graveyard.

Halloween Night--written by Pittsburgher Marjorie Dennis Murray and illustrated by Brandon Dorman--is a rollicking rhyme just perfect for a spooky read-aloud. Little listeners will squeal with delight as they hear how the witch and some zombies, a ghost and several green creepies prepare for the most surprising Halloween party ever.
