Well, the witch wanted that whole pumpkin for herself. But she needed help – Halloween was just hours away...

With the rhythm and repetition that children love, author Erica Silverman tells a rollicking story about a witch who through her encounter with a ghost and other spooky creatures, discovers both the value of cooperation and the joy of sharing.
