Children's book: mid 1970s, a scary (for me) mystery

This is what I remember: A boy (and his dog?) wants to go outside, and he asks his mother for permission. She says "okay, but don't cross any streets in this fog!"

Then he goes outside and turns a few corners, since he can't cross any streets. He comes across a store, with a scary old man(?) who does magic(?) and I was scared.
The book had many illustrations, but it was not a younger-grade book. I'm thinking it might be Ruth Chew, but none of the book descriptions I can find have these details.
