How about a vintage Halloween treat? One that the girls and I check out from the library every year?
This is Space Witch by Don Freeman of Corduroy fame. First published in 1959, at the height of the space craze, this is a reprint from the 1980s. It is about Tilly Ipswitch, Queen of Halloween, and how she builds a space ship, intent on scaring children on other planets one Halloween.
Kit, her beloved black cat, is skeptical, although he is intrigued by the prospect of visiting the Milky Way, for obvious reasons.
She finally lands between two craggy peaks and spies a bunch of little creatures in space suits below! You can guess the rest.
