Publisher Comments:

Nine-year-old Minikin Snickasnee (Minx for short) wishes she were not a witch's child. Her greatest ambition is to go to school and make friends with children her own age. But the evil Madame Snickasnee doesn't care what her daughter wants — she spends all her time turning local villagers into flower pots, making Black Spell Brew, and causing trouble on her broomstick. So when Minx decides to conjure up her own spells in the magic cauldron one night while the old witch is out there's no telling what could happen!

Join the feisty Minx as she finally meets some new friends and learns all about friendship, courage, and standing up for what's right. Will little Minx finally find her place in the world at last?

About the Author

Anna Elizabeth Bennett worked at the Brooklyn Children's Museum and the Brooklyn Public Library in the 1940s and 50s. Later she was a children's librarian in Massachusetts. Her best-selling children's book Little Witch remained in print for more than forty years and inspired hundreds of children to write to the author, telling her how much they enjoyed the story. She died in 2002 at the age of 87.Helen Stone (1904 - 1978) attended the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts and the Art Students League, and later studied in Paris. After spending time teaching and doing some designing and commercial art, she began illustrating books, and in 1944 she illustrated her first book for children. During the next two decades she illustrated a number of books for children, written by a variety of authors. She believed in giving full scope to design and color, and in enlivening her illustrations with a sense of humor and beauty. She usually worked in three colors and black, but also used separations. She received two Caldecott Honor Book citations, for All Around the Town (1948) and The Most Wonderful Doll in the World (1950).

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book. I remember checking it out from my local library many times when I was a little girl. After I had children of my own, I checked it out again and enjoyed it just as much (if not more) as an adult. The characters are vibrant and make me wish I knew them in real life. Written over 60 years ago, it is a timeless piece of children's literature. My local library no longer has a copy of it; I would love to have a copy of my own so I can revisit this happy piece of my childhood whenever I need a trip down Memory Lane.
