Marsha Riti -- The Picky Little Witch Release Party!


Join us when
children's book illustrator

reads & signs her new picture book,
The Picky Little Witch
at this special storytime that will get us in the mood for Halloween!


All are invited to show off their Halloween costume early and dress up for this super fun storytime! 

Mama Witch stirs up a cauldron of special Halloween soup for her Picky Little Witch. From a pinch of snail and salted rock to goblin tears and shower of soil, she tosses in an assortment of ingredients in an attempt to please her Picky Little Witch. After much coaxing, the tyke takes a bite and realizes that it isn’t so bad.
When the two fly off for trick or treating, Picky Little Witch immediately sets her sights on such sweets as licorice snakes, coconut cakes, and caramel dandy. After much resisting, Mama Witch finally nibbles on a piece of candy and discovers that it is really quite delicious!
Complete with a recipe for Halloween Soup and humorous illustrations, this fun read addresses the subject of picky eating. Parents and children alike will enjoy this treat.
