From Publishers Weekly:

Spooky is back again! In this story by author and illustrator of Spooky Night and Spooky and the Ghost Cat, Spooky matches wits with a wizard. Once a pet of the nasty witch (sister of the wizard), Spooky is now a housecat who enjoys spending time outside in the begonias. When the wizard, deciding he wants Spooky back, sends bats to torment him, the cat sets out toward the wizard's cave. While the wizard naps, Spooky takes his magic wand. Problems arise when the wizard awakens, but finally Spooky runs home with the wand and throws it in the fireplace. When the logs are lit, a fireworks explosion (and no more bothersome bats) ends the book on a predictable note; however, readers will be entertained throughout the tale by Spooky's wit. Glass's dark textured drawings evoke a somber, shadowy mood.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 The witch's cat-turned-housecat whom children met previously in Spooky Night (1982) and Spooky and the Ghost Cat (1985, both Lothrop) is now plagued by a flock of bats, sent by the witch and her wizard brother. Spooky develops a plan to outwit the wizard and, using his feline talents of silence and stealth, steals the magic wand. Lashed by rain, thunder, and lightning, "he dodged them as only a cat can dodge, quick, quick, quickety-paw," and makes his escape. Like the previous two titles, this employs rhythmic language and is mildly suspenseful without being frightening. The dramatic and colorful illustra- tions on textured paper project well for picture-book storytelling and should be enjoyed at Halloween. Susan H. Patron, Los Angeles Public Library
