Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
On the corner of Hemlock and Blight, the magic shop of Miss Pustula Night is open for business.<br> <br> <br> Creepy curiosities and endless enchantments fill the shelves, but it's the rumor of a shop ghost that really has kids excited. Brave Georgie McQuist has been double-dared to find the phantom, and he's up to the task-- but he never expected that he'd give the ghost a fright!<br> <br> Together, boy and ghost take on the task of cataloging every last treasure in Miss Pustula's crowded and cavernous cellar, down to the last spell and skeleton-- but what will the witch do when she catches them there?<br> <br> The deliciously spooky, tongue-twistingly clever rhymes in this story are illustrated in lavish detail-- each creep and kraken crawls across the pages, and Miss Night's shelves are crowded with pickled elves and dusty potions.<br> <br> From the first friendly fright to the last lurking ghoul, this adventure is perfect for Halloween. . . and beyond.
