Violet and the other doll (whose name I don't remember, since I was a kid when I read this) are excited about a halloween party, but then they run into the thorn witch. A good story about not judging by appearances. I liked that it always spooked me a little, even though I knew it would turn out alright.

I just (finally) found the title of this book! I love, love, loved it when I was a kid. Now I need to find a copy, mine is long gone.
