To kick off the Halloween season we have an interview with Ron Keres, author of “The Scariest Story You’ve Ever Heard“, a Reader’s Choice Book Award Gold winner. The coolest thing about Ron’s story is that he tells it without any pictures…just spooooooooky onomatopoeia words!!! So… let’s set sail in our sieve to meet Ron Keres, hear an excerpt from his book, and have a little wordplay fun by making our own spooky onomatopoeia sounds….oh, and don’t worry, if you have little ones who scare easily, this story isn’t too scary!

What Can I Be? Now that Halloween is Coming it’s time to figure it out! Here’s a little treat, with a little beat, about a boy figuring out what he wants to be this Halloween. What Will You Be this Halloween?! Hmmm?
We dropped THREE Halloween episodes this season – 1 from the writing ghosts at Velma Teague Library, 1 from the writing ghosts at Independence High, , & 1 from the ghosts of Halloween past…SO much spooky listening fun! Halloween and wordplay go together like bolts and Frankenstein…..Spooooooooky!
Here’s a little Halloween wordplay treat…or is it a trick?! Bawhahaha! I dare you to figure out what these nonsense words mean….Splooook!
On this episode Buttons & Figs is proud to feature original ghost stories, for brave kids, by Nathaly and Zoe, students at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona. Nathaly shares stories from her childhood, stories of haunting, stories of mystery and asks you – do you have any ghosts stories of your own? Zoe then shared a story told by her father, about a time when a dead lizard turns a kind ghost into a ghoulish one! Happy, spooky Halloween from all of us at Buttons & Figs, a podcast for kids about playing with words and stories….Bawhahahaha!
