Chew, Ruth The Witch at the Window 144 Pages Random House Books for Young Readers, 2014 (reprint from 1984). $15.99
Siblings Nick and Marjorie discover quite a few unusual things
at the park, a big spoon, a talking bird, and a tree that leads to a secret
room. When they experiment with a spell book they find, will the fun they have
lead to more trouble than they can deal with?
I love Ruth Chew books, they have such a timeless feel. For such
short books, she really creates a sense of distinct characters and great
brother/sister relationships. I love they are spooky without being super scary.
Her books are highly sought after in October and these new covers should broaden
