Magic for Sale

Written by Carrie Clickard and illustrated by John Shelley

Published by Holiday House

Publisher's Summary

On the corner of Hemlock and Blight, the magic shop of Miss Pustula Night is open for business.

Creepy curiosities and endless enchantments fill the shelves, but it’s the rumor of a shop ghost that really has kids excited. Brave Georgie McQuist has been double-dared to find the phantom, and he's up to the task-- but he never expected that he'd give the ghost a fright!

Together, boy and ghost take on the task of cataloging every last treasure in Miss Pustula's crowded and cavernous cellar, down to the last spell and skeleton-- but what will the witch do when she catches them there?

The deliciously spooky, tongue-twistingly clever rhymes in this story are illustrated in lavish detail-- each creep and kraken crawls across the pages, and Miss Night's shelves are crowded with pickled elves and dusty potions.

From the first friendly fright to the last lurking ghoul, this adventure is perfect for Halloween. . . and beyond.

Carrie Clickard

Born in Michigan, Carrie Clickard has spent every free moment since with a book in her hand or one in her head waiting to be written. A band, drum corps and drama geek throughout high school, she graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in advertising and bad roommates. Having worn dozens of career hats including copywriter, pressroom manager, marketing VP and colorguard instructor, she decided to become an author and wear every hat she could imagine. Now an award winning author and poet, Carrie credits her writing success to a firm belief that dragons exist and that competitive baton twirling should be an Olympic sport. In addition to FBA silver medalist Dumpling Dreams, her work has been published in 12 countries and numerous magazines and anthologies. When she’s not safely tucked behind her computer monitor writing stories, Carrie tours the world in the company of family, friends and a four pound poodle named Pandora.
