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.

 

Synopsis:

A New York Times Best Illustrated Book for 2008, this adorable ghost story will charm the very youngest Halloween trick-or-treaters.

This is one of the best kid's books I've read in the past year (and my kid agrees.) It has a quirky sense of humor, which means that (unlike most of his books) I don't mind reading it five times a day. And the art is simply phenomenal, looks like it is woodcuts? Really an adorable book, that takes the scary out of ghosts and witches, and particularly perfect if your kid is going through a fearful phase. My kid is a little less than two, and he's loving it, but I bet kids who are a bit older (and who get the sense of humor even better) would love it even more. Regardless, it works for a variety of ages.
