What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

JUST THE RIGHT MIX OF SWEET AND SCARY for the youngest trick-or treaters

At the edge of town lives a clever girl with a spooky problem: Her house is haunted! Luckily, she happens to be a witch and knows a little something about taking care of ghosts. She catches them, puts them in the washing machine, airs them out to dry, and gives them new lives as sofa covers, table cloths, and, of course, bed sheets to cozy up under. Fresh and charming illustrations in dynamic orange, black and white bring this resourceful heroine and these spooky ghosts to life.

This is my favorite Halloween book to read with my kids! The illustrations are inventive and fun, and the story is lighthearted and engaging. It includes ghosts, a witch, a cat, and a haunted house, but it’s not scary at all, which is perfect for my toddler and pre-schooler. We read it a lot in October, but we like it so much we read it all year round!
