Happy Halloween from the Book Table!

We want to help you celebrate Halloween this year in the best way possible, so we’ve stocked our shelves with decor, books, games, costumes, and music to help you do so!


The Teeny Tiny Ghost by Kay Winters

Each day the teeny tiny ghost goes to haunting school to try to become scarier. It’s hard work, though — especially since he’s frightened by his own screams! Then, one bat-black October night, the teeny tiny ghost is floating in his teeny tiny home when he hears a RAP TAP TAP on the door. And then he knows it’s up to him to keep himself and his teeny tiny cats safe. But what are the chances that a teeny tiny timid ghost will really be able to scare someone away?

AlphaOops! H is for Halloween by Alethea Kontis

H gets top billing — but a stubborn B has something scary to say — as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.

Ack! It’s time for the show, and A isn’t ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go! The misbehaving alphabet is back, and there’s no telling who will take the stage next. Z for zombie? P for pirate? Will X think of something good in time? Neon-bright, comically detailed illustrations show a cacophony of costumed letters, each with a mind and personality all its own. Along the bottom, tiny pumpkins arrange the players in proper order, making this alphabet story letter-perfect for Halloween.

Murder Mystery Mansion: the Classic Whodunnit Game

Put on your inspector caps, and let the mystery begin! On a dark and rainy night, a man goes into an old mansion–then he mysteriously vanishes into thin air. Was he a victim of foul play? Or just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Your job is to find out what happened to him. Play in teams to solve the mystery using simple deductive reasoning.

To solve the mystery a good detective needs to answer 4 questions:

  1. Who did it? Which or our suspects did the dirty deed? Amber, Eugene, Venus, Rusty, Lily, Spider? The villain changes every time you play.
  2. How did they do it? Was it with cyanide? Shot? Stabbed? Electrocuted? Pushed down the stairs? Tortured with a venomous snake?
  3. Why did they do it? For love, money, power, jealousy, fame, or revenge?
  4. Where did it happen? The bedroom? The garden? The game room? The closet? The kitchen? The bathroom?

The quicker you solve the murder, the faster you win!

For 2 or more players, ages 8 and up.

Zombie Fluxx: the Ever-changing Zombie Card Game

The dead are returning to life! So what are you going to do about it? Grab a chainsaw? Barricade the windows? Start a zombie baseball team? Draw a card, play a card. Try to kill the zombies that are keeping you from winning…until someone changes the rules and suddenly you might actually want zombies! It’s the Fluxx game where zombies change everything.

For 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.


photo 2A few years ago, the Book Table added its name to the list of Halloween costume vendors in Cache Valley, and we have taken this job quite seriously.

Come in and take a gander at our fun selection of Halloween costumes for all ages!


…and don’t forget about the annual Halloween Treat Walk in Downtown Logan from 10 am-4 pm on Friday October 31. Our employees will be dressed up and handing out candy with the rest of the shops on Main Street, so be sure to bring your kids by for an extra treat!

Spice up your spring with Electronic Egg Hunt

Electronic Egg Hunt

These little eggs crack us up. -Er, make us laugh, that is. We’ve got Electronic Egg Hunt eggs in, and they are cute!

How it works: You hide the eggs, turn them on, and let the kids try to find them. They occasionally peep out encouragement like, “I’m over here!” until the kids find them. They then press the button, and a character pops out (depending on the color of the egg) and sings congratulations. Great for small children who need a little help, or if you are just looking to spice up your springtime activities. Be aware, however, that the batteries are non-replaceable, so in order to get the most use out of them you should only use the eggs when you are ready to play. Happy hunting!

Puddle Jumper Shoes Are a Splash

In 2003 Utahan Carrie Miner was in a dilemma. She wanted cute shoes for her two young daughters to wear, and was at a loss of where to find them. So, she started her own line of footwear for young children, and Puddle Jumper Shoes was born.


They’re described as “top quality” “European style” and “bold colors.” Another great thing about these shoes is that they are made for either crawling–with soft soles–or walking–with hard soles. They are simply adorable to look at, too. We’re pretty fond of them in the upstairs at the Book Table.

PJS has many styles for different ages and we are proud to sell the infant Maryjanes, for ages 12-18 months.They are made of durable material, offer arch support, and wide-width.

Puddle Jumpers is now sold in over 2,000 stores in the United States, Canada, and Australia. A portion of the annual profits goes to organizations who help orphans around the world.
