Margo's Musings! A Witch in the Supermarket?



Well, this October has been a monstrous delight! The Halloween season brought with it thrills and chills, and we were excited to see all of the seasonal spirits and spooky stories haunting the book block. Margo has requested that I end this month of fright with one of her absolute favorite Halloween tales. We've told you about this story before, but we thought it would be fun to spotlight it once again.

The Witches' Supermarket by Susan Meddaugh will take you on a grocery store adventure that you won't forget. Hold onto your brooms, because this book brings with it all of those wonderful, spooky feelings that we love to digest with lots of candy!

Helen is a little girl and Martha is a dog, and they find themselves in a spot of trouble on Halloween after they follow a portly woman in purple, who leads them down a dark alley and into a strange, unknown place. Helen becomes increasing aware that this particular grocery store seems a bit off as she walks past the strange produce department, and Martha takes note of the disappointing pet section. When the brooms start to fly, Helen suddenly realizes that they are in the company of witches and cats in the middle of a witches' supermarket!

This story will sweep you up into the mystical world of witches and magic! Margo insists that she's seen the plump lady in purple, and swears that the witches' supermarket is really located behind the Ashpot town library! I think this story was the perfect choice to end the spooky season, and also to welcome in the eating season! So, thanks to Margo for plopping it in my lap, and thanks to all of you for lurking around our corner of the book block ; ) ~ F


Here's a bit more about this fun story! 

Cats, cats, and more cats roam the aisles. All the shoppers look somehow peculiar. The smell of rotten eggs pervades the dairy section. There are brooms of every size and...speed?

This is no ordinary, everyday supermarket. And when Helen and her dog, Martha, find themselves caught inside, they'll need luck and lots of Halloween magic to begin trick-or-treating on time.

Beware! The witches' supermarket is not for the weak at heart. But if you're looking for some wickedly funny holiday craziness, grab a shopping cart and step right in.

Happy reading! ~ F
