My Review
A Magical Halloween is a fun children's book set during Halloween. The Bobos Babes--Scarlett, Cora, and Daphne--are getting ready to dress up and have some fun. They go to Ladybug's Boutique and discover there are three special masks waiting just for them. They're told not to put the masks on until after noon on Halloween, but when they do, that's when the magic happens.
This is a delightful story with wonderful illustrations. Young readers will enjoy following the three girls as they learn just how magical their new masks really are. It's the perfect story for this time of year.
5 stars!

The Fun in Connecting the Books in a Series

One of the most fun parts of writing The Bobos Babes Adventures is creating connections between the stories. Thus far, I have written about fifteen stories. A Magical Halloween is the fifth published book of the series. Although they do not need to be read in sequential order, if you do read them all, you may find yourself giggling at some of the connections. I LOVE when someone messages me that they found one of the connections.

 For example, here’s a sneak peek at some of the connections that I have created in the series, Bobos Babes Adventures:

 Leonard the Lion’s Crush on Barbara the Butterfly
One of the main reasons that Leonard the Lion and Barbara the Butterfly do not end up together in the book The Lion’s Secret is to keep the cute story alive of his secret crush. In an upcoming story, Lost without the Ladies, one by one, the men realize that their ladies are missing. Leonard the Lion keeps telling everyone to relax, but once Leonard finds out that Barbara is missing, he faints. Spoiler Alert:

The ladies are fine. None of the men heard where they were going because they were so focused on the big game.

Mr. Wiggles’ Forgetfulness
In the first released Bobos Babes Adventure: The Case of the Giggles, Mr. Wiggles had previously had the case of the giggles himself, but he just cannot remember how he got rid of them. In Lost without the Ladies, his wife told him where all of the ladies would be. When the men come to him for help, he cannot remember what she said.

Russel the Swan’s Love for Sweets
In the Missing Egg, Russell leaves the nest to eat chocolate cake with his close guy friends and an egg goes missing. In Love is in the Air, the upcoming Valentine story, he is one of the creatures watching through the window as Angel Scarlett bakes cookies for the town of Harmony. He is also dining with his wife for Valentine’s Day and is eating dessert. In Lost without the Ladies, he is very concerned that Tom the Tiger didn’t bring the cake to watch the game.

 Squirrel Being the Victim
In the intro of most of the stories, you will see Princess Daphne providing comfort to a squirrel. In The Missing Egg, she is having the squirrel shake hands with a fox as if they weren’t getting along. In The Elegant Emu, Princess Daphne is providing comfort to the squirrel after he is pricked by a porcupine.

There are a few more connections among the stories, and I’ll probably add more in as I write. I look forward to hearing from the next reader that finds a connection!

The Lion's Secret was published in June 2021, a tribute to her mother and late father's incredible love story.  The Lovey That Came to Life and The Bobcat Birthday Party will be releasing in the upcoming months.
