In the Halloween 2006 doodles, you can see Google logo alphabets have tied up in a skeleton hand,also the moon in the background is not a dark gold full moon. I think, its the day time vision for Halloween doodled on the year.
Google’s doodle on Halloween 2007 quite different. It had no candies, pumpkins and ghost figures in it. Instead of all these things, Google logo alphabets designed in doodle with a drawing hall picture, seems to be a hall of some old dusty building.You can see letter ‘l’ inside the staircase.

In outer cover of the book you can see the Google logo in green. Clicking the play button in doodle, you can get to the level in which you can cook dish with witch.
