A Wish for Winellda the Witch, by Esther Clark

Praise for Winellda

This not-too-scary tale is the perfect mix of whimsy and fact. It’s a real treat for young ghosts, goblins, and witches everywhere.

– Nancy Viau, Storm Song

The wonderful Witch Winellda makes the magic of Halloween come alive for children and adults of all ages.

– Stacey Helfman, Ancient Chinese Secret and Walk Like and Egyptian
