Now available in board book format, this adorable ghost story will charm the very youngest Halloween trick-or-treaters.   Once there was a little witch whose house was haunted.  But being a very clever little witch, she knew what to do: catch the ghosts, put them in the washing machine, and air them out to dry! Named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book for 2008, bold illustrations in a dynamic style bring this resourceful heroine and spooky ghosts to life. Just the right kind of scary for young children, this story brims full of cozy charm.
