What the Witch Left was one of my favorite books when I was growing up. Today I picked up Witch's Broom to see if it was as awesome, and it was! As I noted here, Chew passed away in 2010.
Amy's mom finds a broom in the backyard and while it isn't good for sweeping up anything, it is awesome at giving Amy and her friend Jean rides from Brooklyn to Staten Island and elsewhere! But there's that truly bizarre bluejay that keeps hanging around in the backyard...what's HER deal?
It makes you want to find a magic broom!
The pencil drawings of the witches are creepy, enough to send little shivers up my spine. Great fun!
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
