Minikin Snickasnee - called Minx for short - was nine years old and wished with all her heart that she was not a witch's child. It may sound like fun to be the daughter of Madam Snickasnee and be forbidden to go to school, to wash behind your ears, or go to bed at night. You might even like to see certain people you know turned into potted plants and have your own flying broomstick.
But Minx didn't like riding around in the dark or cooking up horrid pots of Black Spell Brew. Even a witch's child rebels, and one day, Minx sneaked off to school. The principal was certainly surprised to see his newest pupil arriving on a broomstick, and life got much more exciting for a lot of people -- the school-children, Mr. Beanpot the detective and Mrs. Sputter of the Parent-Teachers' Association.
Anyone who ever longed to cast a spell or experiment with a magic kettle will delight in the wonderful story of Minx and how her dearest wish came true. In print for the first time in thirty years is Anna Elizabeth Bennett's classic tale of a little witch who dreams of becoming normal girl.
