Welcome to AEET's first journey into the spooktacular month of October, our destination-- Halloween! We're getting a jump on the jitters on this crisp October Eve, and heads off-- I mean "heads up", there's a full month of creepy crawly things and frightening fun lined up too so I hope you'll come back often. We kick it all off a bit gently with some highlights from the October 1973 issue of Jack and Jill kid's magazine. This issue in particular has stayed with me since my childhood, I absolutely love the painted illustrations (and cover) for the main Baba Yaga tale, and there's lots of other cool and creative things to do too, like make a Spookie Shack, or a Pumpkin Man! We're just getting started fiends, stay tuned for more ghosts 'n ghouls and other assorted bumps in the night! AIEEEE!
