I tend to love Chris Van Allsburg's less famous books like this one.

A quirky twist on a Halloween story, my fifth graders LOVED THIS BOOK. I dressed up as a witch and read it to them, and they had so much fun with the idea of a run-away witches' broom.

I also like the different perspective on witches... they're not all bad after all.

Of course the highlight is really Van Allsburg's illustration, but the story stands up on its own.
