About the Book

A deliciously spooky, spectacularly illustrated story of a boy’s adventure in a magic shop that’s perfect for Halloween . . . and beyond! On the corner of Hemlock and Blight, the magic shop of Miss Pustula Night is open for business. Enchantments fill the shelves, but it’s the rumor of a shop ghost that really has kids excited. Brave Georgie McQuist is prepared to find the phantom, but he’s not prepared for what happens when Miss Night catches him in the act!


★"Shelley expands on Clickard's tally of witchly and wizardly stock in trade by further cramming every nook and shelf in sight with precisely detailed arcane items and thrillingly icky specimens. One-stop shopping for all your elixir, potion, and spellcasting needs. Jinxes 50 percent off!"—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
