    Anyone who loves dogs, cats, witches and Halloween, and intricate pictures with lots of view, will get a kick out of this book. Martha dressed up as a witch and her dog dressed up as a cat inadvertently find their way into a no dogs allowed witches’ supermarket on Halloween. I like that they get there because Martha is going out of her way to return something an old woman lost. Poor Martha the dog in her cat costume; this is one of the few books where I could enjoy a dressed up companion animal.

All the illustrations are wonderful. There is a bit of suspense here, and it’s just a little scary, but mostly it’s fun and funny and so cute.

    3.5 STARS When a little girl and her dog (dressed as a cat) follow an old lady into a mysterious grocery store in order to return a coupon (for a broom) she dropped, they marvel at how different the grocery store is compared to the one her mom shops at; but it's not until something really unusual happens that they realize it's actually a store for witches! I love the idea of a witches' supermarket! I found myself chuckling over the various grocery items for sale. I know I would have loved this as 3.5 STARS When a little girl and her dog (dressed as a cat) follow an old lady into a mysterious grocery store in order to return a coupon (for a broom) she dropped, they marvel at how different the grocery store is compared to the one her mom shops at; but it's not until something really unusual happens that they realize it's actually a store for witches! I love the idea of a witches' supermarket! I found myself chuckling over the various grocery items for sale. I know I would have loved this as a kid since, on Halloween, my friends and I had great fun creating disgusting names for all of the food we ate ;-) I think the little girl was a bit slow to catch on to what kind of store she was in (little kids would naturally want to imagine it was a witches' grocery store, even if it wasn't, haha!) but I think that makes it more fun for the reader who gets to "know better" than the character herself. I didn't like the poor dog having to be dressed in the cat costume; I know it was supposed to be funny, but I felt sorry for the dog though I guess it got a bit of a shining moment out of it, in the end.

    Helen and her dog Martha - dressed as a witch and her cat for Halloween - find themselves in a very unusual supermarket when they follow an older woman on the street, determined to return her lost coupon to her. "Members only. Trespassers Will Be Sorry. No Dogs Allowed" say the signs on the door, and the food for sale - from rotten eggs to poison mushrooms - make it evident that this isn't the kind of supermarket your average mother frequents! When she is unexpectedly confronted by the store man Helen and her dog Martha - dressed as a witch and her cat for Halloween - find themselves in a very unusual supermarket when they follow an older woman on the street, determined to return her lost coupon to her. "Members only. Trespassers Will Be Sorry. No Dogs Allowed" say the signs on the door, and the food for sale - from rotten eggs to poison mushrooms - make it evident that this isn't the kind of supermarket your average mother frequents! When she is unexpectedly confronted by the store manager, and gives the game away, Helen (along with Martha) finds herself facing a gaggle of angry witches. Will they get out in time...? Susan Meddaugh, whose many beloved picture-books about Martha the dog have been turned into a PBS television show, here delivers an engagingly witchy tale, perfect for Halloween! Her trademark visual humor - how unhappy Martha looks, when put in a cat costume! haha! - is everywhere to be seen. Many of the little details, in the supermarket itself - the different product names, for instance - will delight attentive young readers, who will be wishing that they might stumble across a witch's supermarket themselves!

    Terrific story by the author of ' The Martha Speaks ' books and tv show. The finding of a coupon dropped by a woman in purple which gives you a free broom upon redemption leads to a mysterious door and a most unusual type of supermarket.

    A super cute picture book about where witches go food shopping! Illustrations were utterly delightful, and I loved the characters of Helen (little girl) and Martha (dog dressed as a cat). A quick and funny read.

    Helen saw a woman drop something, a coupon, so followed her inside a supermarket that turned out to be for witches only. The products they sold were quite humorous, such as baby brown bats, iguana chops, poison apples, poison mushrooms, apples with or without worms, just to name a few. Chaos ensued when they discovered Helen's dog in the shopping cart. The very end is pretty funny but the book isn't all that exciting. The artwork is very nice.

    (I just realized as I sat down to review the books I have read with my children the past three days that Eve Bunting's book In the Haunted House was illustrated by Susan Meddaugh...so two books with her illustrations in two days. :). Once I noticed that both were illustrated by her, I can see some similarities in style...but In the Haunted House is much darker and spookier...this one has brighter colors and is more playful.)

A young girl named Helen (dressed up as a witch) and her dog (dressed up as a black cat) see a woman drop a coupon. They follow her into a room marked with warning signs to try to return the coupon. It is a witch's supermarket....Helen doesn't realize this right away, of course, but my kids loved reading the signs of all the creepy things being sold at this unusual supermarket. Fun story, fun ending, great details in the illustrations...I had fun teasing my children that I would be happy to make some of those foods for dinner tomorrow...poison apples, lizard gizzards, and rotten eggs to name a few. One of my children said she would never eat again, but the other two just groaned. Cute Halloween story.

    Helen cannot wait to go trick-or-treating with her dog, Martha. She has decided to be a witch and a very unwilling Martha is to be her cat companion. As they head out on Halloween night, Helen sees an odd-looking woman walking in front of them. She then notices a coupon that has fallen out of the woman's pocket. Helen and Martha follow the woman in hopes of returning the coupon. What they discover is a hidden supermarket. Things are not what they seem as this store carries a very strange array of Helen cannot wait to go trick-or-treating with her dog, Martha.

I absolutely love the Martha Speaks book series and television show! I was very excited to read the book that started it all. I also love Halloween and could not resist this frightfully fun read. The illustrations are simply gorgeous! Young and old alike will fall in love with Martha and her larger than life personality.

    This book was beyond adorable! The pictures took me right back to when I was a child in the 90's and they were so colorful and busy that you just wanted to take a few minutes to soak up each page and all the details. Plus it comes with cool Halloween stickers in the back!:) The premise was a little girl and her dog (dressed as a cat) went into what she thought was a supermarket to return a coupon an old lady had dropped and she wandered into something completely unexpected.

Well, something unexpected to her. It was just adorable and I even contemplated buying this. It was $4.99 new at Barnes and Noble! This is exactly the type of book that makes me want to start a picture book collection of holiday themed books and all around favorites. I feel like this is timeless and the pictures were just so wonderful. The captions made me smile as well. A little girl dressing her dog as a cat because she was pretending to be a witch and witches only have cats, not dogs, "everybody knows that." stahp ♥

    I just discovered this wonderful read-aloud -- twenty years after it was printed! It's Martha (before-she-was-a-talking-dog!) and Helen on a Halloween adventure. What started off as a good deed (returning a dropped coupon to an old lady) ends up as slightly spooky adventure to the Witches' Supermarket! The merchandise there deserves a twice-over (and more than likely a thrice-over) as there is much to see on the imaginative and humorous spreads (brooms with training wheels, cats everywhere...)

When Helen and Martha are "outed," they make a daring escape and get lost in the Halloween crowd of trick-or-treaters. I doubt either will be volunteering to accompany mom to the grocery store in the near future! Now...where can I get a copy of my own?

    This was a lovely, awesome, and engaging book! I love the illustrations and the story is humorous and fun to read. I highly recommend reading this book, regardless of age. It's not scary and I think preschoolers would follow this story. Great book to read on Halloween! Especially if a child is dressed up as a witch. There is a quote on the back that says, "A book that's as much fun as Halloween itself." from the School Library Journal and I love that quote. It speaks the truth!

    Have you ever wondered where witches buy all of their supplies? Well, one little girl and her dog find out in this book! It is a cute and clever story with detailed pictures on every page. The story is a little bit long, so it would be best read to children with a longer attention span. It could be read aloud or individually. I really liked the main character and the fact that she is trying to help and ends up getting in trouble. No good deed goes unpunished, maybe?

    Helen dressed as a witch and she dressed her dog Martha as a cat for Halloween. They both stumble upon a witches' supermarket when following a Babushka looking lady down a dark alleyway. They compare the store with the one that her non-witch mother goes to. One exciting event leads to another and the supermarket becomes topsy-turvy. The illustrations are a bit infantile but every fun and detailed. Helen dressed as a witch and she dressed her dog Martha as a cat for Halloween.

    Helen and Martha are going trick-or-treating and they see a lady dressed in purple drop a coupon. Helen and Martha follow the woman into what they think is a regular supermarket. They cause all kinds of trouble just by searching for dog food. This is a super book for beginning readers.

    Fun story about a girl and her dog (Martha, the speaking dog, although she doesn't speak in this book?) accidentally find themselves in a witches' supermarket where they definitely don't belong. Very clever and funny illustrations.

    Most adorable illustrations, I only wish they were bigger so you could look more into the details. For some reason, the concept of a witch grocery store is very fascinating.

    I liked the story, but I wondered why the witches didn't want a dog around. Aside from cats not liking dogs, what was the problem with them being there?
