Janice MacDonald's profusely illustrated chapter book tells the story of a most unusual Hallowe'en. Featured are Annalise the Witch, Ernie the Ghost and Milton the Skeleton - who live in their haunted house. When the three friends decide to make costumes and join the trick-or-treaters on the darkened streets in search of fun, excitement and treats, everything is turned upside down. Adding to the witchery of the story are Pamela Breeze Currie's many spellbinding illustrations of the friends and their adventures. Children will love this story of ghosts and ghouls, of magic and mystery, where nothing is as it appears and results are totally unexpected.
