A funny, interactive Halloween story for preschoolers.

Bones are for shaking.
Capes are for sneaking.
Mouths are for moaning.
Tummies are for treating.

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. The rhythmic text begs to be chanted aloud, and the little witch provides all the thrills of this favorite holiday, without any of the chills.
