Haunted Book Review Thursday--On Time


MAKE: Special Edition Halloween

Make Magazine

Ok kiddies, this is one that you're going to have to get so just suck it up and pull out the credit card.

Make and its sister publication Craft are two magazines with the price of a book...but usually very well worth it. The Halloween Edition of Make is no exception. Chock full of projects (I love the word "chock", don't know what the heck it means) from food, animatronics, costumes and decorations, this has a little bit of everything (including a book review, to which I totally disagree with from last week; trust me, not them, they're just trying to sell you something). In short, this book should definitely be in your library somewhere because it's one of the better books on creative Halloweening around.

Go buy it...now.

Just so everyone knows, Sausage Von Trapp is perhaps my best friend in the world and we regularly tear each other to bits with glee.
