Did that cat just talk to me? Did that button just move? Is that flower petal flying?
In Witch's Cat,The Witch's Buttons, and The Witch's Garden, children learn lots of things about magic . . . from traveling to the time of knights and ladies, to shrinking to the size of a blade of grass. Magic is fun, but it's also hard, and there always seem to be consequences.
Ruth Chew's children loved stories about witches, and she figured that other children would love them too . . . and they do. Here are three of her best, each full of fanciful fun and magical mayhem.
RUTH CHEW was born in Minneapolis and studied at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC. 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.
