Wanda, The Girl Who Cried, Witch!
by Midge Guerrera
Wanda, lives on a hilltop with her family and a herd of goats. She is incredibly lonely but none of the kids in the valley are interested in being her friend. It is Halloween, the day witches dance in the forest, and the perfect time for Wanda to trick the children in the valley into being her buddies. Ooops, that was a big mistake. Wanda cries Witch one to many times and inadvertently conjures up, Matilda, a really frightening witch. Follow Wanda on her journey to find playmates. Along the way, she learns that feeling special, being happy with who she is, enjoying where she lives and always telling the truth is the best way to find and keep friends.
