The Witch Family is about two 7-year-old best friends, Amy and Clarissa, who love to draw and hear stories about the Old Head Witch Nobby. One day, Amy courageously decides Old Witch is too wicked and must learn her lesson by being banished to the top of a dull, bare, glass hill. For company, she has three cats, a Little Witch Girl named Hannah, and a Weeny Witch Baby named Beebee. With a bit of magic, Amy and Clarissa earn their own lesson and discover life on the glass hill in Hannah's shoes. I liked this book because I enjoy all the fantasy. I especially admire Amy and Hannah's courage in this book. If you are a great fan and fantasy, I recommend this book for you!

I read this when I was a kid and I have a copy that I get out and read about once a year. It's such a fun story. Amy and Clarissa have their own way of speaking to each other, which is what my friends and I had when we were small. We also liked to draw pictures for the stories we told each other. It's fun to read it now because it takes me back to childhood.
