Behind the Black Gate

It’s Halloween, but Olivia has no one to go trick-or-treating with. She decides to go out alone. At first it’s a little scary to walk around all by herself, but the further Olivia goes, the braver and braver she becomes.

Still: The big house behind the gate is still spooky – maybe even a little bit extra spooky tonight.

A picture book about fear, courage and unexpected friendship.
