Description: "The little witch was only a hundred and twenty-seven years old. That's not at all old for a witch. She spent about six hours a day doing exercises in witchcraft, but she couldn't get her spells right. Then she got into deep disgrace at the Walpurgis Night party. She was given a year to make herself into a good witch or be expelled. Would she be able to pass the test? So many strange and funny things happened to her in that year that sometimes she thought she never would."
Illustrated throughout with lovely (often humorous!) b&w line drawings – several of which are full-page.
Pictorial covers are creased. Spine is worn and slightly faded. Pages have the usual tanning commensurate with a paperback of this vintage, but remain unmarked and completely free from foxing. Binding is super-tight.
