The plot is completely fuzzy to me.

I last read it in the early 2000's, I presume it was written between 1970-1990.

I believe the target audience was teenagers to young adults.

I can't remember anything about the cover, illustrations, or the author, however it was a paper back novel.

There is one specific part where they go up a tree in a picnic basket, or some other type of basket, to visit an ogre, or some other sort of mythical creature.

I wanted to leave this at the very bottom because they're just things that keep sticking in my head about the book, but I'am so uncertain that I do not wish to confuse anyone:

The witch might have been a curly haired red head.

Her familiar might have been a black cat.

(Sorry if I came off a little too much by the rules, felt a little impersonal, hello everyone :) )

Awesome books! I have the omnibus and have had to replace it.
