This book is beautifully illustrated. The story has wonderful character and is just the right length to get a message across to listeners. I wish this book was still in print, because I hate to see the story & pictures lost to future generations! (Extra fun for kids if the witch's voice is read sounding like the "Wicked Witch of the West.")
