RE the Taylors' lobster costumes...it's Connecticut, after all. There could be some silly tradition or a college-related thing that was behind the lobsters. I'm picturing an annual party of some kind where lobster is the main attraction. Maybe I'm just thinking of the Corn Roast my folks go to...there are Corn Roast King & Queen hats for the host and hostess.
Anyone can grow herbs in their garden, but the fact Morbidda grew them gave Karen more of a reason to believe she is a witch, cause her "normal" daddy grew a vegetable garden which included pumpkins. I think herbs sound good though, and I like the fact Druscilla played along and made up all those names to creep Karen out...maybe she should have pulled a Dawn and left things on her doorstep or something
I had quite the eraser collection as a kid, some pencils, too. ITA that Dru came across as rather odd, particular in dress. I also thought it strange we never did meet her parents. Do we ever, btw? Or is all we hear about is the divorce and later how her mom chooses to move from Stoneybrook and the bad memories? I much preferred the KIMCC "Halloween Parade" to this and always "MA's Bad Luck Mystery," for how funny it is and of course, Jamie and Georgie the ghost!

I remember bits and pieces of the book where Karen first hears about Dru, about the way she dresses and how she ate a mushroom sandwich (something I'd eat..with vegan ingredients of course)..as well as Karen's reluctance to go to the party..along with how she warms up to Dru enough to invite her over. It was mentioned in KGI that the older children told Karen Ms. Porter is a witch..when she was around 5 which is an age she'd believe anything..plus, Mary Anne also believed Karen was convinced because of the appearance..the wart..not to mention how she cackles..etc.
