Dorrie the Little Witch

These books by Patricia Coombs were my favourites when I was little. My Mom read them to me, then I read them to myself, then I read them to my kids. They are still in the library - usually in the "special" section for holiday books, with a jack-o-lantern on the spine, although they are very good year-round.

I love how Dorrie's aunts are oblivious to peril, and how Dorrie gets into trouble by being curious and independent, and how the big witches can't do anything about it, and Dorrie solves the problems in creative and dangerous ways. I also love Dorries' cat, Gink. One day I will have a cat named Gink.

question: have you read them?

mompoet - they are very good
