Witches on Switches

"Tonight is the night when dead leaves fly,
like witches on switches across the sky." Harry Behn

One of the perks of being a Mom to small people is
spending countless hours reading, rereading and
rereading again books to our children. Some of my
fondest memories from my daughter's childhood are of
visions of my giddy girls exiting the library with over their
head stacks of teetering books precariously balanced in
their arms. On many occasion we would discover a book
that we would check out again and again until we could
recite all the lines, recall every bit of detail in the illustrations
and knew that it simply must be added to our home collection.
Halloween by Harry Behn was one of those books.
Couch's delicate balance of slightly ethereal illustrations
enhances Behn's scene setter poem making this book
a holiday classic in our house.
