About the Book

Three children head into the annual Halloween Spooktacular with their uncle, as menancing clouds gobble up the full moon. Just as they enter the grounds, lightning strikes the ground next to them. The terrifying explosion scatters the crowd in every direction.

When Robbie, Savanna, and Ty stop running, they find themselves in the dark woods on an overgrown path without their uncle. 

The shivering kids come upon a darkly lit house, a tall woman with black hair named Mrs. Orangebottom, who invites them in, a snarling pumpkin, and a magic cat. But it's something else that sends the kids screaming for the front door.

The vivid illustrations on each page (black background with white lettering and a splash of orange) make this adventure story really pop!
