What the Witch Left Author:Ruth Chew A locked drawer in an old chest--and Katy and Louise have the key! When the girls open the drawer, they find--
a little round mirror with a tarnished silver frame,
a long bathrobe with a hood,
a pair of gloves,
a pair of red rubber boots,
an old metal box with the picture of a fruitcake on the lid,
--just ordinary stuff. Or is it?
This is one of the popular Ruth Chew books on magic and witches for younger children. She wrote and illustrated the texts with beautiful charcoal drawings. This is the book with the 7-league boots so many remember reading about as childen.
