Meet The Spookles
Sold individually with various sub-titles such as “Dracula’s Peace Treat-y” or in sets, this new series, Spookles, (Available on Amazon.com or www.wennenterprises.com, $4.99; ages 4-10) by Colleen Wenn and illustrated by her son Daniel Wenn along with Maciej Janczak, is reminiscent of the Mr. Men series, only geared for Halloween and slightly more sophisticated and quirky. There are almost a dozen different characters who inhabit the happy town of Spookleville including wrapped up, mummy-like Rapper, the adorable cupcake loving Drool and Bolts who, as his name implies, has his head held together with metal fasteners. Try one or try them all for some fun, monsterful moments.
