On the corner of Hemlock and Blight, the magic shop of Miss Pustula Night is open for business.

Creepy curiosities and endless enchantments fill the shelves, but it’s the rumor of a shop ghost that really has kids excited. Brave Georgie McQuist has been double-dared to find the phantom, and he's up to the task— but he never expected that he'd give the ghost a fright!

Together, boy and ghost take on the task of cataloging every last treasure in Miss Pustula's crowded and cavernous cellar, down to the last spell and skeleton— but what will the witch do when she catches them there?

The deliciously spooky, tongue-twistingly clever rhymes in this story are illustrated in lavish detail— each creep and kraken crawls across the pages, and Miss Night's shelves are crowded with pickled elves and dusty potions.

From the first friendly fright to the last lurking ghoul, this adventure is perfect for Halloween. . . and beyond.
