Despite the theme of witches and creepy critters, this is a very uncreepy, sweet, and unthreatening picture book suitable for children just getting into things spooky. Mitzi is a right little witch. She lives in a sort of permanent Halloween, surrounded by cobwebs and dubious-looking aunts in pointy hats. She wants a pet--a really, really creepy pet, please--but, despite repeated broomstick-flights to Cackle & Co. pet store, she just can't get one that satisfies. Finally a kitten named Hoodwink shows up at the door, is almost turned away on account of being horribly cuddly and nice... and turns out to be just perfect. Arthur Howard has won awards for his previous books Cosmo Zooms and When I Was Five; it's easy to see why. (Ages 3 to 7) --Richard Farr
From Publishers Weekly
Despite her dainty button nose and freckles, Mitzi wears a purple witch's gown and eats skull-shaped Rice Creepies cereal. She needs a frightful pet to match her gothic style. When a fuzzy marmalade kitten appears, Mitzi sighs, "You're simply not creepy enough." But she changes her mind after an evening of prowling, and names her sidekick "Hoodwink." Howard (Cosmo Zooms) uses cute-fierce characters and cobwebby settings in this comical rejection of sugar and spice. Ages 3-7.
