Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Halloween's answer to The Little Red Hen. While her hollow-tree housemates (a ghost, a bat, and a gremlin) laze around, the little witch does all the unhousework–hanging the cobwebs, dirtying the laundry, etc. When she finds some pumpkin seeds and plants them, she discovers that her friends are stubbornly unhelpful at every stage. While the little green witch's question is always, ˜Who will help me…,' the answers are divertingly varied: ˜Can't hear you,' said the bat. ˜Water, schmater,' grouched the gremlin. As readers will expect, when the witch takes her pumpkin pie out of the oven, everyone is willing to help her eat it. Equally predictable is her refusal to share it. But she has an extra comeuppance up her ragged sleeve, one that will make readers laugh out loud. McGrath has done a fine job of meeting expectations while introducing surprises at every turn. Her gentle humor is amplified by Alexander's sweet and funny watercolor-pastel illustrations. Details like a Mickey Mouse cup on the shelf, a wood crate labeled Apples, and a cookie jar shaped like a little red hen can be discovered in successive readings. Children will enjoy this book before, during, and after Halloween.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

Absolutely adorable...I had the privilege of meeting Barbara McGrath while in Chicago at a Teacher's Conference two years ago. She is great and has been an author of many children's books-the M & M books and many more. She told us in her presentation then that she was in the process of getting this book, THE LITTLE GREEN WITCH, published. It's a lot like one of my favorites from childhood-The Little Red Hen-only a different twist. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
This is the story of the "Three Little Hens" but instead of hens it is a ghost, a bat, and a gremlin.

The little green witch does everything. One day she finds pumpkin seeds. She asks for help to plant them but no one will help. She also waters the seeds, picks the pumpkins when ripe, scoops the yuck and gloop out, carves them, and makes a monstrous pumpkin pie. The ghost, bat, and gremlin smell the pie and hurry over. She asks who wants pie and they all say they do. The little green witch then says she's going to eat the pie herself but first she raises her wand and *POOF* turns the ghost, bat, and gremlin into . . . little red hens.
