ABOUT THIS BOOK

For decades, Ruth Chew's chapter books about matter-of-fact magic have enchanted early readers. Now a new generation of fantasy fans can discover the magic in these Stepping Stones books.

There's something suspicious about that tree. . . .

Jen Mace has just moved to Brooklyn. She misses the woods and fields of her old home, but while walking in Prospect Park, Jen meets Mike Steward. Together they become fascinated by an older gentleman who is always surrounded by birds and seems to appear and disappear quite suddenly. Jen and Mike learn that magic can happen when you least expect it. And though it is very exciting, it can also be dangerous.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

RUTH CHEW was born in Minneapolis and studied at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C. While working as a fashion artist, she started writing stories about witches for the youngest of her five children. The first of these, The Wednesday Witch, was a big hit, and her new career was born. Ruth Chew went on to write twenty-nine tales of magic and fantasy that have enchanted generations of readers.
