On My Bookshelf: A Woggle of Witches

I love Halloween, it's most definitely one of my favorite holidays. My collection of Halloween books is growing at steady rate, so I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorites with you each week leading up to this fantastic holiday of mine.

Let's start with A Woggle of Witches by Adrienne Adams, copyright 1971, published by Aladdin Paperbacks. Oh my, how I love this book! As a child I was obsessed with becoming an honest to goodness, broom flying, black hat wearing, witch. I even would have been delighted to become Samantha from the TV show Bewitched, which I was also fascinated by as a small one. But alas, I never learned to fly so my supply of witch books would have to suffice.

I love, love, love the illustrations in this book, and the primarily black color palette gives the book just the right amount of spook and fun. These witches sure do know how to have a good time!

  2. I love Halloween too!!!! A Woggle of cute.

  3. This was my favourite book when I was three, (1983) I think it shaped my imagination in a big way and the memory stuck with me my entire life even though I could not remember what it was called! It took years of random google searches to locate. Gorgeous illustrations!!!
