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
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.
