This heralded story by beloved children's author Donna Guthrie can be enjoyed any time of the year, and is especially fun around Halloween. Here we meet a young boy who lives in an apartment house and is convinced that his mysterious new neighbor is a witch, even though his mother insists she isn't. As children watch to see if she really is, they discover an important value about pre-judging people. Book Publisher: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. Illustrator: Amy Schwartz. 04/09DE PI 9 min.
