Now adapted for board book readers, Brooms Are for Flying is an uproarious celebration of Halloween. With his signature bold, bright artwork and simple, engaging text, New York Times bestselling author Michael Rex provides all the thrills of this favorite holiday without any of the chills.
One Halloween, a little witch joins a group of young trick-or-treaters, and all participate in a wonderful foot-stomping, hand-clapping dance. But when the children take off their masks, they get a big surprise: Under her mask, the little witch really is a witch―and she shows the others that brooms really are for flying.
Michael Rex has written and illustrated over 40 books for children, including the gruesomely hysterical, #1 New York Times bestseller Goodnight Goon. His popular sword-swinging Fangbone! Graphic novels have been turned into an animated show that runs on Disney XD in the U.S., and many other markets worldwide. He visits schools across the country and internationally to share his books with students of all ages, and he has a master’s degree in Arts Education. His work covers a wide range of styles, from the simple, goofy rhymes of Truck Duck, to the heavily illustrated, yuck-filled Icky Ricky chapter books. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, two boys, and a dog named Roxy.
