Illustrated by Victoria Roberts

When crotchety old witch Hepzibah is given a human child to take care of, she's horrified ("not a wart on her," poor thing).
And when, after years of careful training in witchery, the child, Halloweena, asks for human playmates, Hepzibah is aghast. Nevertheless, she wants to see Halloweena happy, and as she tries to find friends for her daughter, Halloweena proves she is indeed a good witch-in-training by conjuring up a way to keep them both happy.
A wickedly funny tale of adoption, acceptance, and self-sufficiency, for ALL seasons, with spellbinding illustrations by the New Yorker artist Victoria Roberts.
