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!

Books

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.

Music

Games

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.

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!

Why We Love Utah Truffles

A week ago we asked employees at the Book Table why they love Utah Truffles so much, and this was their answer:

Why do you love Utah Truffles? Let us know!

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.

Hansen is going out of business

Recently we were informed that Hansen Classics, the makers of fine porcelain figurines, is going out of business. We would like to express our sadness at this, as Hansen has provided the world with wonderful sculptures for many years.

Because they are going out of business, the stock we have is pretty much all that is left. This may be your last chance to buy a Hansen statue, because once they’re gone, they are gone.

You can read more about Florence P. Hansen’s fine work at her website by clicking the link here.

A Little About Liz Lemon Swindle

Liz Lemon Swindle’s artwork has touched many for years. Her emotional, realistic portrayals have gained her a place along revered LDS artists such as Greg Olsen and Simon Dewey.

And on Friday, May 20, she’ll be visiting our store.

Her artwork started small–hanging on the family refrigerator at home in rural Utah. She went on to study fine arts at Utah State University. Eventually she tutored under wildlife artist Nancy Glazier, and a decade later began painting about the LDS faith.Her artwork–which includes two marvelous series about Joseph Smith and Jesus Christ–hangs in collections all over the world.

Who: Liz Lemon Swindle

What: An artist signing/visit

When: Friday, May 20, from 4-6 pm

Where: The Book Table in Logan, UT

Be sure to stop by the Logan Tabernacle at 7 pm to hear her speak.

See you there!
