A witch moves in next door to two children, and helps them see magic in the everyday. Sweet but a bit dated. A nice read for October, though. ( )

This is my first Ruth Chew book, and I really liked it. It is certainly for the lower middle grade or chapter book (6-10 yrs) audience. It is short and the language is not exactly simplistic, but very straightforward. The story is fun, very much in the contemporary magic, witch-next-door tradition (there actually is a witch next door). The illustrations are great and, even thought it was written in 1971, I don't think that the target audience will find it old fashioned. I bought a copy for my 7 year old niece, and I'm looking forward to reading more Ruth Chew. I think it's a great idea to reprint them, since there isn't really very much good fantasy for this age group. PS -- this is the one about the magic fudge and not about the things left in the drawer.

This gentle children's fantasy tells the story of the new neighbor, Maggie Brown, who loves animals and whose fudge makes magic happen. ( )
