Publisher Comments:

Now available in board book format, this adorable ghost story will charm the very youngest Halloween trick-or-treaters. 
 
Once there was a little witch whose house was haunted.  But being a very clever little witch, she knew what to do: catch the ghosts, put them in the washing machine, and air them out to dry! Named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book for 2008, bold illustrations in a dynamic style bring this resourceful heroine and spooky ghosts to life. Just the right kind of scary for young children, this story brims full of cozy charm.

What does she do with them? Why, pops them in the... Washington Post Book Review (read the entire Washington Post review)

Synopsis:

Fresh and charming illustrations in dynamic orange, black, and white offer just the right mix of sweet and scary, in this fun story of a little witch who knows how to catch ghosts.

Kids wish that every day would be Halloween. Here is a book that will make you wish the same. This beautiful and surprising book about a house full of ghosts made me laugh out loud. I read it aloud to everyone and they all loved it.
