‘Tis the season to start thinking about dressing up the kids (and ourselves)! Costume stores are beginning to pop up all over the place selling their polyester wares, but this year, how about thinking of some novel ways to surprise and delight the trick-or-treaters with some book-inspired gets-ups? Instead of Spiderman, why not try dressing your little superhero up as a griffin, unicorn or pea-eating monster?
Fantastic and extreme creatures abound in Bookboard’s new releases this week. We’ve got everything from the aforementioned griffins, unicorns and monsters to velociraptors, witches and a Chicago-based balloon retrieval man named Frank. We also have more down-to-earth costume inspiration like soccer-playing dads and John Glenn. (That’s funny because John Glenn was an astronaut. Which means he wasn’t ALWAYS down to earth. Ba doom boom.)
