Halloween has ended badly for Felina because her broom breaks and she can't return to her home high in the sky. Taken in by the Doon family, who are willing to take care of the little witch until she can return to her home, you'd think that she would be grateful.

Not so! Felina's negative attitude makes her far from being a welcome house guest, but the family members keep trying to work with her to improve the difficult situation.

Over the next twelve months we watch as Felina goes from being a bad little witch to a nice little girl. This short, 74 page story chronicles Felina's first bath, her initial classroom experience, how she learns to read, and how her negative attitude is replaced by a much more positive one.

Not only will young readers enjoy this story but it also marks a nice transition into chapter books which no longer feature illustrations. This definitely has the feel of a big kid's book!
