Nothing cures being sent to your room on Halloween night like an unexplored forest. Count on it!
This is no ordinary night. It's Halloween and a mischievous boy has run away from home. He takes a path through twisted forest trees and comes upon a frightful scene - three witches up to no good! They see him, too, and that's when the magic begins. Will he outsmart the witches as they try to capture him? Told through the prism of a child's imagination, you'll discover that daring and wit come in handy when three witches are out to get you.
"A magical story that captures the fun and spirit of Halloween. I highly recommend it!"—Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times best-selling author of Turtle Summer
This is a story about taking chances, thinking on your feet, and being resourceful and brave when you face the unexpected. It's about discovering that grown-ups don't have all the answers. The delightful riddle is a fun teaching tool for parents and teachers of grade school children and will have them returning to this clever story again and again - even when it's not Halloween.
"The Witches Three Count on Me! is a deliciously scary story in rhyme about a clever lad who outwits three witches to save himself on Halloween night. How does he do it? The answer is a riddle to be solved, dear reader!"—Cassandra King, best-selling author of Tell Me a Story
