Virtual Halloweeeeen Party, 2021: Christian McKay Heidicker

! It’s the virtual Halloween Party!

Join us as we post new message across
the day of the eve of the Day of the Dead,
into the night, across the witching hour,
and even into the Day of the Dead, itself.

It’s past your bedtime,
and you’re checking your phone under the covers:

Christian McKay Heidicker
former contest judge, 2013-2019,

has a new book to follow-up his
Newbery Honor Recipient YA
“Scary Stories for Young Foxes”.

Scary Stories for Young Foxes

The series has been compared to “Watership Down”,
but he answered my question on such with an answer along these lines (not an exact quote of the author):

I love “Mrs. Frisbey and the Rats of NIHM”! “Young Foxes” is so often compare to “Watership Down” but that book was so dark and depressing that it is closer to “Mrs. Frisby”. She does wear a little vest and that stuff, and isn’t entirely realistic, but the message is more positive.

The new title is “Scary Story Stories for Young Foxes: the City”

In that same panel– presented by Politics and Prose Bookstore, Washington, DC–
Christian told us that the new book features ghost stories from the future,
Robots, Extraterrestrials, and more, all told in his insistently realistic style.
