About the Author
Wende and Harry Devlin graduated from Syracuse University with degrees in fine arts and both evolved into accomplished painters. They later moved to New Jersey, where they became lifelong residents, to raise their family.
The Devlins first collaborated in the 1950s on a syndicated comic strip, Raggmopp, based on the antics of their seven children. After this, for more than thirty years from 1963 to 1995, they delighted young children with their Cranberryport and Old Witch series.
These stories contained more than just happy endings, featuring recipes pleasing to children and adults alike. In fact, many people remember Old Black Witch as the "Blueberry Pancake Witch," and this beloved series went on to sell over a million and a half books.
Wende's words, brought to life by Harry's vivid illustrations, will continue to enthrall future generations as an unforgettable legacy in children's literature. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Old Witch lies, cheats, and steals. Just a little. Just enough to keep the cred she established in the first book (she knew evil, and believed in it to a point). As an adult, I love her sourpuss charm and her loose-cannon surprises. She's effectively a bratty little girl with magical powers (eeek!) who is oh-so-slowly learning to behave herself. As a child, I baked that cake, stuck it in my toy picnic basket, and galloped around with it on a broom.
And yes, I rolled my eyes at the accusation of *racism* for the previous book (titled "Old Black Witch!"). Where is that coming from? Because she can busta rhyme? Come on!
