KIRKUS REVIEW

With bold black prints on a bright orange background, this cheery tale presents readers with a young, can-do witch who isn’t fazed by a house full of tissue-paper ghosts. When she moves into “a big old house at the edge of town” and discovers that it’s haunted, she just catches the ghosts, one after another. She pops them all into the wash and hangs them, smiling and sheet-like, on the line, before deploying them as curtains, tablecloths and other household linens. A real demonstration that less is more: The simplicity of color and line combine with the capably happy heroine to make this a whimsical winner. (Picture book. 2-6)
