The Witch Who Was Afraid of Witches

By Alice Low, Illustrated by Jane Manning


A bewitching tale for beginning readers, the perfect early chapter book story for Halloween!

Wendy is a little witch who is afraid of her mean, bossy witch sisters—until one special Halloween night when she makes a magical discovery: Wendy’s sisters can fly fast, cackle loudly, and cast spells, but Wendy can fly even faster. Can she find a way to out-witch her sisters?

In this I Can Read Level 4 paperback—complete with full-color art and short chapters—Alice Low has adapted her popular story specifically for readers bridging to chapter books.
