Synopsis: When a witch curses their favorite tree, Stefan and Gaila seek the help of a wizard, who counters the witch's spell with a riddling promise.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2?Stefan and his little sister Gaila have a favorite tree. One day a wizard appears and promises them that it will become part of a beautiful castle. Soon afterwards, a witch happens by and trips over one of the roots. She proceeds to put a curse on the oak, vowing that though it will become part of a royal dwelling, the structure will fall to the ground right after it's built. The wizard eventually returns and devises a scheme that circumvents the devious deed. Goodness wins out in the end?the tree is made into children's blocks. After a young prince uses them to make a play castle within the real one, it falls, but it is rebuilt with Stefan and Gaila's help. The hag disappears in a rage, never to be seen again, and a new oak begins to grow where the old one had stood. While not a first purchase, Marshak's original tale is deftly told, incorporating a number of interesting twists and turns. Rand's trademark watercolor paintings flow across each spread, and his witch is genuinely eerie. Suitable for one-on-one sharing and for reading aloud.?Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library, WI
