Old Witch, Little Witch Girl, Weeny Witch, and two real girls in a fantasy that blends the worlds of reality and imagination. A Halloween classic about the power of make-believe.
"Amy, almost 7, and her best friend, Clarissa, like nothing better than sitting together to draw pictures and make up stories about mean Old Witch. When they banish their favorite character to the barren glass hill they've drawn, Old Witch is so miserable and cranky that Amy sketches a little girl and a baby to keep her company.... The story is full of delicious vocabulary, puns, rhymes, and spelling, most often through the unusual voice of Malachi, the magic spelling bumblebee." -- AudioFile
