Are any of Eva Ibbotson's books for younger children? Her monsters are wonderful- really yucky but often friendly. Picture books- Meg and Mog, about at witch and her cat. The same author, Jan Pienkowski, has a pop-up book called Haunted House which is great. Funnybones, by the Ahlbergs, is about a family of skeletons.
I expect you already have The Worst Witch on your list.
