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

PreSchool-A cherub-faced little witch leads a cast of Halloween-costumed kids through a variety of movements. Clever pairings include leading a mummy in "Arms are for reaching," a werewolf in "Tails are for wagging," and a skeleton in "Bones are for shaking." In true trick-or-treat spirit, when the little witch takes off her mask and whisks away on her broom, the children are surprised but amused by what they see. This book is a delightful way for preschoolers to enjoy Halloween. The computer-generated and pencil graphics are clean and simple. The brightly colored monsters dance on a pure white background and the short phrases are in large black type. The images are not scary but in fact, once masks are removed, show warm and friendly kids from a variety of ethnicities. Perfect for storytime.
