On Halloween, Old Witch baked a scrumptious Halloween pie. Then, setting it aside to cool, she leaped on her broom and flew off to make some mischief. Soon the wind began to blow. It blew down Old Witch's chimney and out her window. It blew through the trees and over the graveyard fence. And with it went the spicy scent of Halloween pie. Zombie in his cave sniffed the wind. Skeleton in his grave sniffed the wind. Vampire, Banshee, Ghoul, and Ghost sniffed the wind. Then they all rose from the graveyard and followed their noses to Old Witch's cottage. This delicious Halloween romp, filled with spooky sounds and midnight magic, begs to be read aloud again and again and again.
