I know a story

I am looking for some help finding a children's book from the 60s. It was about a little witch that lived in a tree and she had trouble flying. If I remember correctly I had this book about the same time as "Where the wild things are". I cannot remember the author or any other details. Thanks for any help.

Was it the Little Leftover Witch by Florence Laughlin (1960)?

Thanks Magan but no this one is not it. This little witch was short and stocky. Any other suggestions?

I'm trying to find a copy of an early 1960's reading text book , I think for 8th grade, with "The Ghost of Benjamin Sweet" play in it. My class performed this for the school, and now as a teacher I'd like to have my class perform it for the school.
