Si es la noche antes de Halloween y tus padres contratan una nueva niñera que viste un sombrero negro mientra ríe como un cuervo…¡debe tratarse de una bruja! Y de seguro, tú eres su nueva víctima.

Pero sé valiente. No temas.

Después de todo, tienes algunos trucos bajo la manga. Y sabes muy bien cómo lidiar con brujas. Se necesitará más que eso para arruinar la mejor noche de tu vida.

"Freitas’ digital art depicts a colorful house full of Halloween decorations and homey details, and the spreads with the bruja on her broom (or bike) are full of whimsical shapes. The characters’ faces are expressive, and it’s clear the child isn't afraid of the maybe-a-witch babysitter. Of course, the joke is “it’s almost Halloween” and the babysitter could just be wearing a witch costume...but do we know for sure? 

A fun tale to share during spooky season."
— Kirkus Reviews

As Halloween approaches, an evening with a new babysitter becomes a high-energy adventure in Siqueria’s seasonal story, which incorporates Spanish phrases. Though the sitter rolls up on a bicycle, the book’s second-person narrator sees things with holiday-colored scenes sustain the upbeat tone.

"Freitas’s cartoonish digital illustrations in mostly cheerful hues show a witch and her babysitting charge in a cat-and-mouse game whose object, ultimately, is friendship and a pleasant bedtime. Baby-Sitters Club members, take note: brujas-in-training make the best sitting charges."
