PreSchool-Grade 2 Children have a new treat in store for them this Halloween: Ms. McWee, a witch who lives just down the hall. As proof that his neighbor is indeed a witch, a young boy describes her traits, one by one. He does so with the logic of a budding lawyer and the earnest appeal of a character that might have been drawn by Judith Viorst. Ms. McWee, the boy says, seemed to know all about him before the two even met. She makes "click clack" noises late at night. Most telling, Ms. McWee just loves Halloween. Naturally, the boy's mother refutes each piece of "evidence," but this does little to dispel hisand oursuspicions. "I'm not so sure," is his repeated and measured reply. The illogical logic and underlying humor of this picture story make it a compelling tale to read, and one which is sure to please young listeners. Black, white and orange illustrations are well suited to the text, combining the mystery and fun of Halloween with caricatures of city living. Both author and illustrator reach the same conclusion: whether or not Ms. McWee is a witch, she is certainly a charmed and captivating character. Anne E. Mulherkar, formerly at Dist . of Columbia Pub . Lib .
