Scary Godmother

bookcover
Author: Jill Thompson

Little Hannah Marie is so excited! This is the first Halloween that she'll be able to Trick-or-Treat without her parents. Her cousin, Jimmy, is not very excited about having to take Hannah along with his friends, however; she's just going to slow them down! Jimmy thinks up a devilish plan to scare Hannah and get her home early. Fortunately for Hannah, instead of getting a haunted house full of horrors, she meets her Scary Godmother! (A Scary Godmother loves the dark and creepy and unusual. They are the Ambassadors of Spooky, and pop in whenever things get scary!) So watch as they turn the tables, and put the tricks on Jimmy instead! This delightful hardcover graphic novel was created by the award-winning writer/illustrator Jill Thompson.
