Sweet little book. I remember it from my childhood. Wonderful illustration. I loved the way that the illustration straddled the text drawing the eye from one corner to the opposite on the page. Very creative. ( )

Here is the story of a little witch named Blanche who is constantly getting into trouble because of her youth and carefree attitude. She belongs to an order of responsible, adult witches, and is only a member because of her ability to turn her blue nose on and off!
The Tale begins on the eve of Halloween Night, where the witches have big plans to perform a flight formation late that night. Afraid of being late, Blanche sets her alarm clock extra-early, and, ends up flying out much, much too early for the coven meeting. She meets up with children her own age who teach the young witch how to have fun trick-or-treating on Halloween Night! ( )
