I absolutely loved Ruth Chew books as a child and wish they would reprint them. Harry Potter is great, but with several hundred pages and some violence they're not appropriate for young grade schoolers. I read this book in the second grade and I still remember it. I wish my little girl who is 6 had everyone of these wonderful books.

I remembered reading this book in the fifth grade and it set my imagination soaring!

The story revolved around a witch who cast a spell on these buttons, one was actually a man/wizard who she shrank down to button size and another was a flying saucer. From what I can recall, the two friends (along with the reader) find these things out as they go along, and the story twists and turns with surprises every step of the way.

One scene has the two friends shrinking down in size, so they can fit into the flying saucer button and then take it for a ride, to spy on the witch.

I've read two other of Ruth Chew's books, Witch's Broom and Wednesday Witch, and both were equally delightful. It's a shame that all of Ms. Chew's books are no longer in print.

It would be amazing to see one of her stories adapted into a motion picture.

Format: Paperback
Written by my daughter, Clancy Kimble, age 10:

‘’The Witch’s Buttons’’ is a good book. I loved the plot and story, but it was a bit slow to get to the point at times. I think I would have enjoyed it better a year or two ago when I was 8 or 9. Stories with witches appeal to me and this one did too.

*SPOILER*
I love that you think that Witch Betsey is a bad guy but in the end it turns out that Silas (the good guy in the beginning) was bad.

It was a great book and I’m glad my mom made me read a book she read as a child!!!!!

This was one of my favorite books as a child and I'm excited to have found it on Amazon! I purchased it for my daughter who has very quickly become a fan of it also. Ruth Chew has written some extremely interesting books and I would recommend her to anyone. I would also recommend strongly that they purchase it from Amazon.com!

I read this book back when I was back in early grade school and I thought it had a very original storyline. It is not a scary book, but has more of an updated, Nancy Drew Witchy-feeling adventure kind of theme to it. I definitely recommend it for the kids!
