THE YEAR WITHOUT HALLOWEEN - A Children's book about making the best of what you have.

Award-winning writer, Shane Bitterling, and Illustrator, Robert Kern III, are publishing their first children’s picture book, THE YEAR WITHOUT HALLOWEEN, a 31-page (BOO!) paperback, which oozes with holiday traditions and the theme of making the best of what you have to overcome the hardships of celebrating Halloween in 2020.

Bitterling came up with the idea for this story at the beginning of the pandemic, when he was sure everything would be back to normal by Halloween. 

But the New Normal reality hasn’t ended and officials and doctors across the United States have, for the most part, written off our beloved holiday this year. No trick-or-treating? No haunted houses? No way! Bitterling took a break from selling his infamous pizza out of his driveway as a means to see friends (from a safe distance) and made pumpkinade out of pumpkins. His imagination has never been so timely. Or scary.

Description: Something scary has creeped into town and stopped Boone’s favorite holiday from happening. The stores are closed. His friends are all stuck inside. This year, it’s all tricks and no treats.

With hard work and a big imagination, Boone sets out to make this the best Halloween ever. But does he have a ghost of a chance? A SPOOKTASTIC new picture book for Monster Kids from ages 2 to 102 about keeping the Spirit of Halloween alive 365.
