Fourth grade books that are spooky for Halloween?

I am looking for recommendations for books for 4th graders that are about Halloween, or are spooky Mysteries or something like that.

I recently read The Dollhouse Murders. I'm not reading it to the class because I don't want to scare any sensitive souls (it gave me the heebie jeebies!). But I am telling the kids about it and recommending it to those who like mysteries.

I always read “Velcome” by Kevin O’Malley to my fourth graders. It is more funny than anything, but if you read it the right way the short stories can kinda be creepy- until they are funny. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/631979.Velcome

I also read “The Boy of a Thousand Faces” by Brian Selznick.

Another author to consider is Mary Downing Hawn. Her books are chapter books and appeal very much to fourth graders.

I always read Bunnicula to my 4th graders around this time of year. Not necessarily spooky, but fun

Another good one is The (Worst) Best Halloween Ever by Barbara Robinson (dame kids as the story The Best Christmas Pageant Ever)

There’s also the Witches by Roald Dahl.

I love The Witches and the audiobook with Miranda Richardson is wonderful.

reading The Girl in the Locked Room by Mary Downing Hawn.



I am tying minimal "work" to the reading. I teach sped resource 6th grade. We are more reading to enjoy the book with a couple constructive response questions. I think the kids are more excited about just enjoying a book than I am. Of course I will get in some of those sneaky learning moments! They just don't have to know that
