Washington Irving's classic tale of romantic schoolmaster Ichabod Crane and his terrifying encounter with the Headless Horseman is given new life in this edition, featuring the richly detailed, one-of-a-kind folk illustrations of Will Moses.
Comics are uniquely suited to fall reading: they make it easy to visualize locations and color palettes that are uniquely autumnal. Some of these graphic novels explicitly take place in the fall, while others deal with fall-like themes, such as change or growing older. Either way, you're sure to enjoy them as you sip your hot beverage of choice, give your pet a little pat, and wait with patience or with dread as winter slips ever nearer.
Vampires, werewolves, monsters, zombies, wizards, witches, and all things that go bump in the night. These topics used to be relegated to fiction pulled out in the fall to get us geared up for Halloween, but now have their own presence in the literary world. So how did they make the leap from October reading material to year-round "go to" reads? I have three words for you: teen paranormal fiction, and I’m not just talking about books, or in our case, used books like Twilight and Harry Potter. Sure, Stephanie Meyer and J.K. Rowling made it “cool” again to write about fantastical elements. It helps that these are usually easy reads and always leave us wanting more; another series, another set of characters, and another chance to further our paranormal addiction.
