Ten Timid Ghosts by Jennifer O'connell (Illustrator)
A witch tries to scare ten ghosts out of the haunted house where they live. She scares each ghost away, one-by-one, using a different disguise or prop each time--skeleton, bat, ghoul, cat, owl, vampire, monster, spider, rat, and mummy. The last ghost figures out the witch's scheme and tells the other homeless ghosts what happened. In the end, the ghosts play a trick on her! Wonderful illustrations accompany this backwards counting book with good rhyme.
