DELIGHTFUL ILLUSTRATIONS WITH A THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE TEXT
The little green witch is one of the most people friendly crones to be found. Illustrator Martha Alexander portrays her as a bit of a pixie (even though she is bright green and definitely wants her own way). Having things her way can be difficult as she lives in a hollow tree with a ghost, a bat, and a gremlin. These three also have minds of their own. About all the ghost wants to do is float above a large steaming black pot, while the bat likes to spend his time hanging in the broom closet. The gremlin is usually found snoozing in the dark, damp under the sink cupboard. Thus, little green witch is left to do all of the 'unhousework.' The poor thing worked herself into a frenzy spreading soot, hanging cobwebs, and dirtied laundry. One day she found some pumpkin seeds and asked her tree mates to help her plant them. Do you think any of that lazy trio would lift a hand (as if ghosts had one)? Well, the little green witch planted the seeds all by herself and it wasn't too long before the pumpkins were fat, ripe, and ready. Once again, she asked for help in picking them. Same story - not a one of the trio would come to her aid. Now, the little green witch didn't take this lack of community spirit lying down. Youngsters will laugh at what she's finally driven to do. Delightful illustrations with a thoroughly enjoyable text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
