Grade 3-6 For readers who have digested The Witch's Catalog (Scholastic, 1976) by Bridwell, here is a more advanced, outrageously funny book for aspiring witches. It provides instructions, wildly illustrated with colorful cartoons, for spells, superstitions, recipes, gardening, and glamour. In a crazy mixture of realism and witchcraft, one finds, for example, a recipe for "dubious trifle," which gives directions for making flies from raisins and slivered almonds. Witches are portrayed basically as nasty and disgusting creatures, but they are never without a sense of humor. Their lives as portrayed in The Witch's Handbook are almost as inviting (but not as detailed) as those of the gnomes in Huygen's book (Abrams, 1977).
