Here I am, still going through possible holiday picture books....I also felt an urge to look at everything Alison McGhee did. This charming book is a little thin on plot and motivation, but it's illustrated by Harry Bliss so who cares? A little witch and a little girl become friends, despite the fears and prejudices of adults. Lots of witchy details and adorable moments.
Verdict: A good choice for Halloween collections and every day storytimes, if witches are ok in your community.
