Just what I wanted Jan 24, 2007
I read this book as a child and was looking for a copy. I got just what I wanted. There was a slight imperfection on the printing on a coupld of pages. Not sure what is was from, but overall, I was pleased with the product.
Timeless classic! May 1, 2004
I'm nearly 40 years old and enjoyed this book when I was a little girl in the early seventies. Now that I have two little girls of my own, I love that this story is still around! Lorna Balian has managed to create a character that is sweet and mischievous and endearing and by the end of the story, you will find yourself with a huge smile on your face! I recall begging my mom to help me put all the special and kooky ingredients into a big pot in the kitchen to see if I could stir up some witches' brew! I won't tell you if it worked, you'll just have to see for yourself! Great illustrations go along with a memorable story. A must-have for any kids' library.

Humbug Witch Dec 1, 2002
This book is expecially good for younger kids, such as kindergartners or first or second graders. It is also a good book for kids younger then kindergartens. It is a really funny book about a witch that cannot do spells and when she tried to turn her cat into a candy bar he gets sick.
Humbug Witch Oct 13, 2002
I read this book to 42 classes of 3, 4, and five year olds over the years and some grandchildren. I'm so happy to have found it again! It's a great story to explore the scary parts of Halloween with small children and the story line, with Fred, the cat, is attention keeping.
