K-Gr 3--It's time for the annual spinning contest, and Witchy is determined to win. She mixes her brew and, after one near disaster, harnesses the laughter of children in the wind and manages to spin a summerhouse on Nantucket Sound so that it faces a different direction. For her efforts, she is awarded three gold medals and has her name recorded in the "Witches' Book of Records." The humorous acrylic illustrations of the bug-eyed witch are delightful, but the story falls flat. There seems to be no motivation for Witchy choosing to spin the house, nor is it clear what will become of it once she has used her magic. The text is bland and at times hard to follow, and the attempts at rhyming the words of the spell don't succeed. Stick with the magic of Adrienne Adams's classic A Woggle of Witches (S & S, 1985) or Don Freeman's Space Witch (Puffin, 1979; o.p.) and turn away from this disappointing title.--Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI
