It's Halloween night and an extraordinarily brave witch has decided to venture out of her safe, haunted house and see for herself just how odd those humans can be, and what's more if it's true they walk instead of fly, wear unpointed hats, and hardly cackle at all.
But you never know what you'll find on earth, and one extraordinarily brave witch might just make a friend - a human friend!
"This gently humorous story is teamed with appealing, warm, yet appropriately spooky watercolours that depict the very brave witch on what is, naturally, her favorite holiday."Kirkus Reviews
