Itï¿½s the night before Halloween, and these witches still have many last-minute things to do! In this spooky parody of Clement C. Mooreï¿½s famous Christmas poem, the witches are up to their elbows in cobwebs and slime, trying to make sure their witchlings are well prepared for their first Halloween broomstick ride. Featuring witches like Mad-Maud and Snaggle-Tooth-Ruth and plenty of ghouls, zombies, monsters, skeletons, and moldy cellars that will satisfy all Halloween lovers, this good-natured book about these wickedly fun witches will have kids more amused than frightened.
From the Inside Flap:
It's the night before Halloween, and these witches still have many last-minute things to do. They must organize ghosts and goblins, hang bats and stretch cobwebs, prepare potions and carve pumpkins, and make sure everything creepy, rusty, and slimy is in place before the haunting begins.
Told with wickedly clever rhymes reflecting the spooky fun made by Mad-Maud, Elise-With-One-Eye, and Snaggle-Tooth-Ruth, this humorous tale will have kids more amused than frightened. References to ghouls, zombies, monsters, cemeteries, skeletons, and dank, moldy cellars will satisfy all Halloween lovers.
By the time the witches complete their preparations, reassured that their witchlings are ready to "show all humans what witches can do," we know that this Halloween will be a magical one, full of plenty of "good fright"!
