Inside a witch's kitchen, flaps incorporated into closeup images of household objects reveal surprises both naughty and nice: "Open it left or open it right,/ Will you want to shout yuck?/ Or will you cheer with delight?" When opened to the right, a flap on a mixing bowl shows "toffee popcorn!" Opening the same flap to the left, however, shows a leaping frog and "slimy frog spawn!" A jar offers either lollipops or "rabbit plops," and the witch herself pops up behind a red door. Satisfying effects, lively colors, and a touch of "ick" should ease toddlers into the Halloween spirit. Ages 3–up. (July)
