Overview

"What's cooking?" asked Old Witch, glaring at Nicky and his mother.

Nicky's mother carefully explained about the contest. Oldwick needed a new bandstand and the townspeople agreed that a carnival, with a cake baking contest, would be a fine way to raise money.

Old Witch snorted as Nicky invited her to the carnival. "You'll have a wonderful time," he said. "And if you like, you may enter the contest, but Mrs. Butterbean always wins first prize."

Grabbing her broom, Old Witch sailed out of the house to the top of a black walnut tree to sulk. Dear, cranky Old Witch returns in this classic 1970 tale, along with her hauntingly delicious recipe!

    What a coincidence!

    I've been looking for Liza Lou and the Yeller Belly Swamp for ever, I picked it up this evening and it inspired me to search for some of other favorites Ispent at least 30 minutes in Barnes and Noble describing theis book to an employee with no luck. I got home called my mom she couldn't remember and I've been searching key words all night picking out pieces from my memory of this book that i read over and over as a little girl. I finally remembered the ribbon, her polka dot ribbon then images of Nicky and his mom came rushing through my mind. Now I'm trying to share how much I love this book and others and another mommy recommended my other favorite the Cranberry Thanksgiving. I don't know what that says about our parents but the joy i found inreading these books has obviosly touched others as well

    One of my favorite books as a child

    My Mom read this book to me when I was a child and I can't believe I found it again. My children love the book now. Very cute story that will always be one of my favorites.
