Category: Children’s Fiction (Ages 3-10), 30 pages
Genre: Children’s Picture Book, Fairy Tale
Publisher: Bobos Babes, Ltd.
Release date: September 2021
Content Rating: G for everyone. It’s a children’s Halloween-themed book about magic and sisterhood.
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.
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.

Do you ever wish you could change anything in a book after it’s published?
My first published book, The Case of the Giggles, we had some important parts of the illustrations that were in the safety margins and got cut off, like Leonard the Lion’s feet and Scarlett’s shoes. The perfectionist in me would love to fix all of that, which I may someday.
Do you have a system that you use when writing your books?
Oh gosh, I wish I did. If I had more time juggling motherhood, my other company, and my books, I would be
so organized. I just write when I can where I can. Someday … Ha! Who am I kidding?
Do you ever feel like giving up writing, and what do you do to overcome those feelings?
Oh, yes! I absolutely love to write, but I am still in my first year of publishing my books. I am learning so much and making mistakes along the way. Writing is supposed to be my outlet and my joy. However, just like any business, you will always encounter negativity or lack of support. My husband is so wonderful. He knows how to run a business and remove the emotion. He reminds me to keep my head on straight and remove the negativity. Also, writing books is expensive. You’re going to spend money that you will later find out that you shouldn’t have spent or that you were getting overcharged. You just have to take them as learning lessons, and hopefully, they aren’t too expensive of learning lessons.
What is the most difficult part about writing a book?
Writing a book is easy, for me anyways. It’s everything else. So many writers wish they could just write a book, but there is so much that goes into marketing and the business side of it. I would say the most difficult part is getting the word out there about your book and accepting that not everyone is going to love your book, and that’s normal.
Do you think you will write a book outside of the Bobos Babes Adventures series?
Yes. I started writing chapter books for the Bobos Babes in the summer of 2020 as well. Scarlett, my oldest is a VERY advanced reader, and I try to write for all three of my daughters. I’m trying to think of a title for the series. Any suggestions? The chapter books tie everything together (with a pink bow – wink wink – referencing the pink bow theme on my books). I also am brainstorming on an idea for a series for younger children as well. I have some ideas. I just need a quiet afternoon to get the creative juices flowing. Hmmm… not sure that’s possible with my big, loud, crazy family of six (inc
