To kick off the Halloween season we have an interview with Ron Keres, author of "The Scariest Story You’ve Ever Heard", a Reader’s Choice Book Award Gold winner.

So… let’s set sail in our sieve to meet Ron Keres, hear an excerpt from his book, and have a little wordplay fun by making our own spooky onomatopoeia sounds….oh, and don’t worry, if you have little ones who scare easily, this story isn’t too scary!
