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.

Forgot about this classic story for the last 30 years until today. Remember absolutely loving this book when I was a little kid. Highly recommended.
