"Witchcraft of the real no-fooling, flying broomsticks and talking cats variety!" -- ABC Press --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Barbara Brooks Wallace has written Victorian mysteries that include a parlor, a tavern, a castle, a scullery, and a gallery. But she claims never to have lived in a tavern or a castle, or owned a house with a parlor, a scullery, or a gallery. So far she has not lived in a tenement, either. She simply dwells in a nice little house in Alexandria, Virginia, with her very nice husband; affectionate Burmese cat, Cleo; and turtle, Peter. Her son, Jimmy, daughter-in-law, Christina, and Victoria and Elizabeth, their two daughters, live nearby.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Joseph Dewey TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 12, 2013
Format: Audible Audio Edition
I loved this book. It's so funny--I kept laughing all the way through the book. I also loved how original this book is. It's about a witch, Miss Switch, who got banished from Witch Mountain. She's sentenced to teach a 5th grade class and to come up with some original witchcraft, so she enlists the help of one of her students, Rupert, who is a self-declared scientist.

This book is a great mix between a strict, but good teacher, a crazy witch, and a determined scientific boy. The mix that shouldn't mix works wonderfully well.

I think everyone will love this book.

Also, this book held up very, very well over the years. It was originally written in 1971, right after we first landed on the moon, and when computers didn't even have screens, but you interacted with them through cards.

Pros:
+Hilarious
+Such a fun book to read
+Great, engaging characters
+The audio reading was great

Cons:
-There is a little bit of dated technology

You probally have not heard of this book, but it is coming back in print! This is fabulous. You have to join Miss Switch and Rurpert for a great adventure. Don't forget to read Mrs. Wallace's other books including two sequels to...The Troubles with Mrs. Switch!

Loved it as a kid. Love having this copy that has the artwork I remember from when I was a little girl. I can't wait to share this with the kids in my family.
