One Halloween, a little witch joins a group of young trick-or-treaters, and all participate in a wonderful foot-stomping, hand-clapping dance. But when the children take off their masks, they get a big surprise: under her mask, the little witch really is a witch—and she shows the others that brooms really are for flying.
With his signature bold, bright artwork and simple, engaging text, Michael Rex has created the perfect Halloween book for preschoolers, who will love to do as the monsters do in this uproarious celebration of Halloween. The rhythmic text begs to be chanted, and the little witch provides all the thrills of this favorite holiday without any of the chills.

Praise For…

“This book is a delightful way for preschoolers to enjoy Halloween. . . . The images are not scary but in fact, once masks are removed, show warm and friendly kids from a variety of ethnicities. Perfect for storytime.”—School Library Journal “The energetic movements throughout are preschooler-perfect (and sure to bring them to their feet), and the final twist is just the right trick for this age group—shivery fun without the fright.”—The Horn Book “With rounded, cuddly pencil drawings and Ruth Krauss’s winning A Hole Is to Dig formula, Rex provides a real goodie for this year’s trick-or-treat bag.”—Publishers Weekly
