Alice Low is the author of twenty-six books for children, including The Macmillan Book of Greek Gods and Goddesses, illustrated by Arvis Stewart. She lives in Briarcliff Manor, NY.From Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-Wendy, a young witch, is told by her older sisters that she can't cackle well or cast strong spells. When she loses her broomstick, they refuse to take her along on Halloween night. Later, when a trick-or-treater knocks on her door, he convinces her to join him. Roger and his mother give Wendy their old kitchen broomstick and she realizes that she does have witch magic, after all. She uses her newfound abilities to take revenge on two boys who exclude Roger from their Halloween fun, scaring them so badly that they run away crying. She also casts spells on her sisters so they fall out of the sky and have to walk home. Children may deduce from this story that it's okay to take revenge on unsuspecting people. Though Wendy does eventually restore her sisters' powers, she never apologizes to them. The illustrations reflect the action of the story but don't enhance it. A secondary purchase at best.
