Delia is delighted! The witch’s parade is finally here! Nothing will stop their fun…except it is raining! What is a poor little witch to do? In a hilarious bunch of mishaps, the witches learn to make the best of what seems to be a bad situation…after all, it could be raining bats and frogs! — Jeanette
A little witch named Delia has been looking forward all year to flying in the annual Witch Parade. When the rumors of rain come true and the other witches start complaining, Delia takes action. Using her best magic, Delia changes the rain to cats and dogs. At first this goes over quite well, but she quickly realizes the animals cause a few issues. She must change the rain again! This time to hats and clogs. And finally, she tries bats and frogs. But each new type of rain brings its own set of problems. How will Delia save the day?

“"Young readers will enjoy the rhyming magic spells and humorous details in the double-page illustrations. The stormy blues and greens lend a slightly spooky mood to this Halloween tale, but the cheerful, chubby witches and amiable ghosties are friendly rather than frightening. A sweet and satisfying Halloween story to share with young audiences."” —School Library Journal
