About the book:

Twas the night before Halloween and all through the cottages
The witches were stirring their brews and their potages
Their cupboards were bursting with hoptoads and newts,
And they'd shined up their pointy-toed, fancy dress boots.

The witchlings were snoring all snug in their beds
With visions of moist, creeping things in their heads.
"Nice night," whispered Mad Maud to Potbelly Pat,
As she snuffed out the torches and took in the cat....

Witches' Night Before Halloween is a fun, poetic look at the night when witches haunt the skies and zombies road the eath The author has done a fabulous job of taking a well-known poem and turning it into a Halloween romp...the illustrator has done a nice job of keeping the mood light and moonlight smiles on almost all the creatures in this tale...Witches' Night Before Halloween will likely be read ove rand over as that speacial night in October approaches.
