The Witches' Supermarket

While trick-or-treating on Halloween night, Helen and her dog Martha happen upon a very unusual supermarket -- for witches and cats only -- where they are most unwelcome!

"When the light finally dawns for Helen, readers, of course, will be way ahead of her -- thanks not only to the book's title but to its hilarious, none-too-subtle illustrations. This knowledge only adds to the fun, however: the giggles begin early, and by the chaotic escape scene, develop into full-scale belly laughs. Definitely in the 'treat' category." -- Publisher's Weekly

"Helen (dressed as a witch) and her dog Martha (dressed as a black cat) digress from their trick-or-treating to follow an elderly woman down a dark alley and into a grocery store. But why are the apples with worms more expensive than those without them? Why all that cat food but no dog food? Why such an incredible selection of specialized brooms? And why so many black cats all over the store? "Everyone is certainly ready for Halloween," Helen notes as she observes the shoppers' unusual attire. Helen, and readers, puzzle together over all this strangeness, until the definitive clue reveals the store's true specialty." -- School Library Journal
