The Little Witch - Otfried Preussler, Winnie Gebhardt-Gayler, Anthea Bell

Thanks to the New York Review Children’s Collection, which re-publishes out-of-print books for today’s children, The Little Witch (New York Review of Books, $15.95) has returned. Originally published in Germany in 1957, Otfried Preussler’s delightfully old-fashioned tale tells of a young witch “who was only a hundred and twenty-seven years old” and breaks the rules to attend Walpurgis Night, even though she is officially too young to do so. Caught and punished, the little witch must spend an entire year proving herself worthy of witchhood. But does she succeed? Read the story, enjoy the charming pen-and-ink illustrations, and find out for yourself. Ages 7-10
