This read-aloud Halloween picture book offers appealing illustrations by Harry Bliss, fun facts about witches (did you know that most are afraid of humans?), and a fun encounter between a little witch and a little human that tests the courage of both. The youthful Elle Fanning (sister of actress Dakota) does a truly fine job narrating this small story. She doesn't rush, is young enough to sound just right for the part, and has a pleasant voice that's full of quirky expression. Fanning enjoys the story—so listeners will, too. In addition to her contributions, the production's fun sound effects (a spooky-sounding waltz score, the whoosh of a broom in flight) add dimension to the listening experience.
