Synopsis: "What's cooking?" asked Old Witch, glaring at Nicky and his mother.

Nicky's mother carefully explained about the contest. Oldwick needed a new bandstand and the townspeople agreed that a carnival, with a cake baking contest, would be a fine way to raise money.

Old Witch snorted as Nicky invited her to the carnival. "You'll have a wonderful time," he said. "And if you like, you may enter the contest, but Mrs. Butterbean always wins first prize."

Grabbing her broom, Old Witch sailed out of the house to the top of a black walnut tree to sulk. Dear, cranky Old Witch returns in this classic 1970 tale, along with her hauntingly delicious recipe!

About the Author: Wende and Harry Devlin graduated from Syracuse University with degrees in fine arts and both evolved into accomplished painters. They later moved to New Jersey, where they became lifelong residents, to raise their family.

The Devlins first collaborated in the 1950s on a syndicated comic strip, Raggmopp, based on the antics of their seven children. After this, for more than thirty years from 1963 to 1995, they delighted young children with their Cranberryport and Old Witch series.

These stories contained more than just happy endings, featuring recipes pleasing to children and adults alike. In fact, many people remember Old Black Witch as the "Blueberry Pancake Witch," and this beloved series went on to sell over a million and a half books.

Wende's words, brought to life by Harry's vivid illustrations, will continue to enthrall future generations as an unforgettable legacy in children's literature.
