After roaming through fields, woods, and streets on Halloween night, Jeoffry the cat is glad to finally return home. On Halloween, Jeoffry shows as much courage as kindness The hound2s howl calls me through the haze to the garden, where pumpkins blaze. As frost has not yet laced the straw, the warm sod sinks beneath our paws. So begins Jeoffry the cat's adventure when he joins the hound on a warm afternoon at the end of October. As darkness approaches, the hound frightened by the hiss of ghosts that turn out to be geese and by the scuffling of bristly bandits that are really raccoons heads for the comfort of home. But before he turns in, too, Jeoffry braves the night when things are not what they seem, and by the light of fireflies guides a Goblin and a Witch to safety in this deliciously spooky story, illustrated in soft, striking pastels.

There is not much to this story, but the atmosphere is well described, for it creates a sort of misty/scary night.
