I read this book when I was still in grade school.

This book is really wonderful. I can't believe that there are others out there who are still commenting on it. I thought that it was just a book that I had read long ago that nobody else knew about. I love it because of the sense of wonder it conveys, as well as a little bit of fear. The reader really is gripped with fear that Minx will get caught by her hideous witch of a mother. My favorite scene is when she's trying out various potions at night. Somehow, when I was a child and came to these chapters, I thought it magical that a child would be awake all night by herself, trying to find something that she desperately hopes will release her from her family situation. I hope that I can find "Little Witch" on the internet soon!

Minikin, Minx for short, is a witch's daughter, but she'd rather not be. She doesn't like making witch stews or seeing the potted plants on the windowsill that are actually children who her mother cursed. She wants to go to school and wash herself, even though her mother forbids such ideas. Minx's story is a well written great read with an interesting and surprising plot. This book is delicious.

This was a favorite book of mine in grade school, and I was so happy to find a copy of it online for [price]. Reading it again has been awesome! The story of Minx, the good witch who doesn't want to be bad despite the urgings of the terrible Madame Snickasee who she is forced to live with. Minx's courage and determination help her in her journey to find out who she is. A very happy ending, along with meeting some interesting characters on the way make this a magical story I highly recommend if you can find it!!

This is about a girl named minx, who is a witches daughter. Minx wants to go to school and wash herself, but she is not allowed to. Minx's mom turns kids and adults who bother her into flower pots, minx waters them and takes care of them. Minx starts playing around with her moms magic powders, and makes some new friends and makes a startling discovery. Read the book to find out more. If you like suspense and magic, this is the book for you!

I owned this book as a child, having gotten it out of a pile of withdrawn books at my library. I read it more times than I could count and absolutely loved it. Alas, when I was about 13 or 14 I had the stupidity to give it away when I decided I had outgrown it. It didn't take me very long to realize that I was wrong, and I've spent the last several years looking for it. It's admittedly written for children ranging from about 8 to 10 or 12, but it's one of those classics that anyone can enjoy.

I have read this book over and over and over again.I checked this book out so many times from the library that they had to put in 2 or 3 more cards and my name was the only one on them. It is funny and a really good book.Minikin or minx was a great character with loving feelings alothough her mother was very cruel.In th end averything turns out alright and Minx has her wish.i suggest everyone read it and im only 14 and i hate to read but this is one makes me want to write my own book.

This was on the shelf when I was growing up. It had been my Mother's when she was a girl. I picked it up one night when I was about eight and fell inlove. I probably read it twenty times. I became fond of peanut butter lettuce sandwiches and Betsy's Grandmother who was so sensible and loving.
My heart just leapt when I found it again.

We should form a club or something. My story of loving this book as a child and then having to search long and hard as an adult to rediscover what it was called and who wrote it seems to be one that hundreds of women share. I can still see the delightful pen-and-ink illustrations, although I haven't held a copy of the book in my hands since I was -- eight? nine? Minx and Madam Snickasnee are so deeply rooted in my memory, it's as if I knew them. There are many, many books I loved as a child, but this one is at the core of my heart. I have ordered a copy from a dealer and can't wait to embrace it again for the first time in 40 years.

"Necromancy is a name I rather fancy!" Was it a wizard who said that line? Was he naming Minx's cat? That is in this book, isn't it?

I'll know soon!
