"In true Halloween spirit, Paul's pictures of the witch's house are spooky and most imaginative. Her palette of gray, black and white in the opening pages reveals all the eerie details of Wilbur and Winnie's existence, and the technicolor transformation is a startling surprise. Thomas's story is simply stated, with a cauldron-full of original humor." -- Publisher's Weekly
"An amusing story for sharing but one which could also be read by individuals who, no doubt, will pore over the many delicious details and visual jokes in the pictures." -- British Book News
