Marsipity is an bewitching young lady with bad luck who after a bite of a Halloween pumpkin pie becomes enchanted. She is able to transform into objects and creatures that delight and surprise her neighbors, as well as her best friend, Marlin.- quoted from Goodreads

If you're looking for that perfect children's book to get you into the Halloween spirit, than I recommend picking up Marsipity. Nothing can be more charming for Halloween than eating a special piece of pumpkin pie that leads to an unforgettable, magical Halloween adventure.

This cute story is written in rhyme which makes it really engaging for younger readers. Bringing this story it life are some simply adorable illustrations that will captive both young and old readers alike. These whimsical pictures have Marsipity changing from a witch to a flower, teddy bear, a comet, apple and more as she and her best friend Marlin going trick or treating.

Don't miss out on Marsipity! With Halloween just around the corner, I highly recommend picking this book up!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
