Summary (from GoodReads):

Little witches abound in this rollicking, rhyming adventure that features all of the fun, fantasy, and treats—but none of the tricks— of a Halloween night to remember!

Whimsical, colorful illustrations overflow with charming details that will engage young readers to read the book again and again to discover all its charms!

Favorite Quotes from the Book:

Witches on their witchy way, followed by their cats.

My Thoughts:

This sweet little book is a delight.  Wonderfully rhyming text paired with charming illustrations makes this a perfect Halloween read for the little ones.  Just slightly spooky, but not at all scary…the book follows a group of children as they prepare for and celebrate Halloween.

Points also for the inclusion of a special needs child without drawing attention to any differences.  This little gem is a keeper. 

My Rating:

I loved this book
