It’s Halloween time in the land of Harmony, and the Bobos Babes are ready for some fun!

When Angel Scarlett, Fairy Cora, and Princess Daphne visit Lily the Ladybug’s Boutique to look for Halloween costumes, they find Lily has left aside three special masks for them. The ladybug informs the sisters that they must wait until noon on Halloween to try on the mysterious masks but assures them they will have the best costumes in all of the land of Harmony.

The sisters can hardly wait, counting down the minutes on Halloween until they can don their curious masks. When the time comes, they learn their secret masks are enchanted, and the girls are magically transformed into the costumes of their dreams.

​After a fun outing Trick-or-Treating, the little monster, witch, and ghost — or sisters — agree that this was the best Halloween of all.

BOBOS BABES ADVENTURES: A MAGICAL HALLOWEEN is the second book I’ve read by Karen M. Bobos, and both books have been a delight to read. A MAGICAL HALLOWEEN is about three Bobo’s friends and their new Halloween costumes for this year. But when they finally opened the box where the mask were in, they were sad that all three had a clear mask. Now everyone would see then, but then as they put their mask on, something magical happens. And you need to read the book to find out what it is.

A Magical Halloween is a perfect addition to the Bobo’s Babes collection. This is a must read for children everywhere as Halloween approaches in 2021. The rhyming story is exciting and fun and the illustrations are so very adorable. I love how each page perfectly fits the story. This book with illustrations bringing the story to life is five Stars for me. I know your children will love this as much as the children in my life do.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.


A Magical Halloween is your 4th published Bobos Babes Adventure. How long does it take you to write a Bobos Babes Adventure?

It depends. During the summer of 2020, my wellness business was at a standstill, so-to-speak, and I was writing to entertain my children. I wrote a book a week. Now that I am full speed ahead with book tours, YouTube videos, marketing campaigns, and launching a book every three to four months . . . and being a mom of three little girls, wife, running my wellness business and managing our home, I write when I can. Did I mention my husband is now working out of town during the week? Thank you, Covid. So, I’ll re-phrase that, “I am a single mom during the week.” I have been working on the same book for a couple of months. I desperately try to write once a week to feel like me.  Writing is my therapy to feel normal.

Where do you write?

Everywhere. Right now, I am on my laptop watching my kids’ ice-skating lesson. I am a busy mom of three little girls under eight. I write while they are in school, gymnastics, eating

dinner… I get a lot done when I let them play on their tablets, but it’s a catch 22 as I try to manage their screen time. My dream, when I am retired, is to have a beautiful office overlooking a quiet lake or even overlooking a private beach on the ocean where I can write and do nothing else.

Do you have any pet peeves when reading a book?

Grammar. I’m obsessed with proper grammar. My bachelor’s degree is in English. I have a hard time reading stories to my children without noticing missing commas or lack of quotations when someone is speaking. I try hard to just “let it go.” I’m probably jinxing myself by writing this. Hopefully, my interview isn’t filled with grammatical errors. LOL

Do you wish you started writing sooner?

I’ve been writing forever. I started writing in fourth grade and had an amazing teacher who was sending in my work to the newspaper and magazines. However, my first book was published in December 2020. I am a firm believer that we are on a journey and things happen when they are supposed to happen. I wouldn’t have been able to write about my children until I had them. Their characters and personalities are based on who they are. Cora is swift because I

cannot keep up with her. Scarlett has angel skin because of her rare skin disease. Daphne is so silly and comforting. It all just fits and makes sense.

What advice would you give other authors?

The same advice that I give myself, “Don’t give up!” Just start writing, and try to stay focused. I always think, “At least my daughters will have these stories to remember how much mom loved them.”


Meet the Author:

Karen M. Bobos began writing poetry and stories at the early age of ten. She is a life-long Chicagoan who now raises her family in the downtown area. During the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, Chicago also became a city of unrest. Trying to keep her three young daughters in a world of magic during such scary times, the Bobos Babes Adventures were born. Her goal was to create a world of Harmony for her family and hopefully for others to escape, even if only for a moment.

The first book of the series, The Case of the Giggles, was published in December 2020. The Missing Egg launched in March 2021. The Lion’s Secret was published in June 2021, a tribute to her mother and late father’s incredible love story.  The Lovey That Came to Life and The Bobcat Birthday Party will be releasing in the upcoming months.​
