About the Author

Wende and Harry Devlin graduated from Syracuse University with degrees in fine arts and both evolved into accomplished painters. They later moved to New Jersey, where they became lifelong residents, to raise their family.

The Devlins first collaborated in the 1950s on a syndicated comic strip, Raggmopp, based on the antics of their seven children. After this, for more than thirty years from 1963 to 1995, they delighted young children with their Cranberryport and Old Witch series.

These stories contained more than just happy endings, featuring recipes pleasing to children and adults alike. In fact, many people remember Old Black Witch as the "Blueberry Pancake Witch," and this beloved series went on to sell over a million and a half books.

Wende's words, brought to life by Harry's vivid illustrations, will continue to enthrall future generations as an unforgettable legacy in children's literature. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

What more could a little girl want?

Old Witch lies, cheats, and steals. Just a little. Just enough to keep the cred she established in the first book (she knew evil, and believed in it to a point). As an adult, I love her sourpuss charm and her loose-cannon surprises. She's effectively a bratty little girl with magical powers (eeek!) who is oh-so-slowly learning to behave herself. As a child, I baked that cake, stuck it in my toy picnic basket, and galloped around with it on a broom.

And yes, I rolled my eyes at the accusation of *racism* for the previous book (titled "Old Black Witch!"). Where is that coming from? Because she can busta rhyme? Come on!

My mother read this story to my sister and I when we were young, 30 some years ago. We loved it then and still have fond memories of the story. Mom still has the book on her bookshelf and I was delighted to find it here so I can get my own copy to read to my children. Additionally, there is a great recipe on the back for Old Witches magic nut cake. My mom has made it since we were little girls and now that we are grown, we make it for our own families and they love it as much as we do!

I had this book when I was about 10 years old, and I remember just loving it! I'm not sure what happened to my copy of it, so now that I have a child of my own, I am disappointed to see that it's out of print but will have to buy a used copy because I loved it so much. I hope it is reprinted soon so many more kids can enjoy this story!

We read this while the (very yummy) Old Witch's Magic Nut Cake baked. The magic in the cake was that it had to be made by kids. Now my daughter and her kids make this every year. Special book.
