KIRKUS REVIEW

 Helen is wearing a witch costume and her dog Martha is disguised as a black cat when they follow a lady who has dropped a coupon for a free broom into what turns out to be an emporium full of weird customers and gruesome groceries (lots of clever names: ``fast,'' ``traditional,'' and ``state-of-the art'' brooms; candies like ``Hot Cauldrons,'' ``Hava-Kava-T,'' and--in a touch of black humor--``Cherno-Belle Chewies''). After Helen (and readers) have had a chance to explore the delights revealed in the lively illustrations, she's discovered--but the mayhem Martha generates among the witches' cats allows dog and girl to escape to the street. Imaginative Halloween fun. (Picture book. 4-8)*justify no*
