If Hocus Pocus is forever your favorite Halloween flick, and you can’t wait for the upcoming sequel (aptly named Hocus Pocus 2), you’re in for a (trick or) treat — because there’s a brand new illustrated novelization of Hocus Pocus, and it’s been spotted at Costco. The Instagram account “Costco Does It Again” posted a photo of it today, and we are so stoked!
The book is wonderfully and whimsically illustrated by Gris Grimly (real name: Steven Soenksen, but we like “Gris Grimly” better), who is known for his darkly humorous books for children and teens such as 10 Spooky Pumpkins, Boris and Bella
, and Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein
. And when you combine a talent like Grimly’s with a story as fabulous as Hocus Pocus, the results are nothing short of … well, bewitching.
The characters you know and love, like Max Dennison, Binx the cat, and the Sanderson Sisters, are reimagined in Grimly’s signature style with dozens of original illustrations. Whether you’re gifting the book to a kid, a grownup fan, or just bringing a little Salem to your own bookshelf, it’s sure to be a hit.
No Costco? No problem! Hocus Pocus: The Illustrated Novelization releases tomorrow (August 30) on Amazon — and it’s on sale right now
, with a pre-order price guarantee!
So Halloween and Hocus Pocus lovers rejoice — light a candle (just make sure there’s no black flame!) and snuggle up for spooky season with this bestselling instant classic.
