The Candy Witch by Steven Kroll

I think I was in the second grade when I first read this book. I was excited to see it at my local library and so of course I had to read it. I loved the story of the little witch who is feeling neglected (something I could relate to as a child and what child doesn’t?) and so she stirs up some Halloween trouble by taking all the Halloween candy among other things in order to get some attention. I enjoyed re-reading this book as an adult. It’s a fun read and my four year old likes it. It was a good opportunity to talk about communication and what to do and particularly what not to do when you need a little bit of love. Pictures are okay, pretty typical for a book from this time period the 70s. My favorite then and now is pictures of all the yummy in the town square including the chocolate fountain. Yum!!!

Happy Reading!
