Still looking for a Halloween costume? Bunnicula series author James Howe shared his ideas for costumes inspired by children’s books in Bookish article.

Howe encouraged kids to steer clear of conventional costume choices such as Harry Potter or Dracula. For those who want to play an orphan, Howe recommends the title character in Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

For those who want to adopt a witch persona, there’s the star of the Miss Nelson is Missing! picture book, Miss Viola Swamp. For those who still need more ideas, check out this Bookish infographic and  Time Out New York‘s interview with Rocket series author (and custom costume couturier) Tad Hills.
