Click, Clack, Boo! Halloween Storytime

Barnes & Noble College Station, 711 Texas Avenue, College Station, TX 77840
On Saturday, October 25, at 11:00 am, Barnes & Noble College Station will host a Halloween Storytime with a reading of Click Clack Boo!: A Tricky Treat. Children and parents will find it hard to resist the new picture book from Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, the team that created the bestselling book Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type. Farmer Brown does not like Halloween, so he draws the shades, puts on his footy pajamas and climbs into bed. But do you think the barnyard animals have any respect for a man in footy pajamas? No, they do not! For them, the Halloween party has just begun—and we all know these critters far prefer tricks over treats. Children are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes, join us for fun activities, and enjoy some treats from our Cafe.
