Usually, Sarah hears the sounds of arguments, chaos, and laughter from her four children coming home from school, but today is different. Her daughter Susie was very upset. That day, Susie explained to her classmates that her family is one of witches, and they all made fun of her and said witches don’t exist. Sarah understands, and tells Susie the story passed down from generation to generation in their family, to explain the rituals and holidays of Wicca, the story of Spike the Halloween Puppy.

Spike was once adopted by a witch close to Halloween, and was very frightened, because he believed she intended to use him as a sacrifice. Spike slowly learns the truth and realizes the witch is not someone to be feared, but a new friend celebrating the magic in nature and its main ingredient, love.
