31 Days of HalloweenWhile I'm a self-confessed Halloween fanatic enthusiast, as parents, my wife and I are always concerned about the abundance of extra Halloween candy that tends to wind up here at Rock Father HQ after trick-or-treating (which by the silly rules of this town has been as early as October 24 in recent years). Generally, it ends up going to my wife's office, but this year another idea has arrived via photographer Micah Smith and his wife Katie. SWEETS THE WITCH AND HER SWEETSWITCH is a new book that tells the tale of a witch that's willing to trade candy for toys. There's even a song and music video to go with it...

sweetsthewitchAbout the Book: 

Sweets the Witch starts off like any other young witch, eating everything her parents give her. As she grows older she starts to only want to eat candy. Even having her teeth fall out doesn't deter her from her goal-to get as much candy as she can on Halloween night to last her all year.

She casts a spell to let children know that she will trade their candy for a toy or special wish of their choice(as long as it's a fair trade for their candy). They can trade it it all or just a bit, the more that they trade the more that they'll get! The children write down a wish or draw or cut out a picture of what they want and put it into Sweet's cauldron pot, then they put their candy next to it and when they wake up they will find their "SweetSwitch". Sweets is a kind young witch who enjoys trading and sharing with children.

It's available now on Amazon and other retailers in both hardcover and ebook editions.
