The Little Leftover Witch is the sweet tale of Felina a young witch that somehow manages to break her broom thus grounding herself with the humans until the next Halloween She s invited to stay with the Doon family and they warmly welcome her into their home and their ives Felina is determined to retain all her witchiness and to be as miserable as possible in the face of all their kindness It s not ong though until she finds herself warming up to their acceptance and she begins to earn what it means to be part of a family learn what it means to be part of a family and Mrs Doon allow her to continue wearing her witch s hat where she keeps all of her magic but they insist she attend school with Lucinda their daughter of about the same age Human school is very different from witch school with very different subjects but Felina dives in and with the help of the humans surrounding her earns to read and begins to make friendsFelina is eagerly anticipating the upcoming holiday season but is terrified when a neighborhood bully tells her that witches don t get visits from Santa because he only visits good ittle boys and girls Convinced she STFU, Parents: The Jaw-Dropping, Self-Indulgent, and Occasionally Rage-Inducing World of Parent Overshare ll receive nothing she pours all of her energy into being as mischievous as she can possibly be When gifts arrive for her on Christmas morning she can hardly believe her eyes A transformation begins to take place in Felina that day and by the time the next Halloween rolls around she has embraced a whole new magic that of aoving familyThe story was written in the early 60 s and is a bit dated but not at all to the point of removing the enjoyment of the tale being spun The unrepentant moral of the story is that the ove of a family is the true magic When preparing this review I came across a few others that felt that the book was flawed in that it presented the message that you can t be who you really are if you want to be accepted Felina did not remain an angry witch She changed But in my opinion they couldn t be farther off the mark Felina didn t change in order to be accepted she changed because she was accepted Love has a way of doing that Very cute story about Felina a ittle witch who broke her broomstick on Halloween and the Doon family who owned the tree she anded in Witches can only fly on Halloween as everyone knows and so Felina was Earth bound for a whole year The Doon family did what any family would do they put a found witch ad in the newspaper Over the year Felina faced all the challenges that any seven year old would There was reading and math to do doctor s to visit figuring out birthday parties and even the rules of Christmas Unfortunately this new edition does not have the pictures by Sheila Greenwald Doing a Google image search reveals some and makes it clear that they would have added a ot to the storyAnd I feel fortunate in that I m old enough to recognize I feel fortunate in that I m old enough to recognize of the dated cultural references and assumptions They might jar a modern child Otoh they might intrigue him or herHowever it.

Read The Little Leftover Witch

This was a book I remember discovering in one of my 5th grade teachers rooms I picked it up to read then and oved it immediately I never owned my own copy but was able to find one recently Upon reading it again after than 30 years it reminded why I oved it so much It was such a beautiful and touching story about belonging with people who ove you This was my very favorite book as a child I checked it out repeatedly at the ibrary and read I checked it out repeatedly at the The League for the Suppression of Celery library and read re read it many times I amooking to purchase a copy of it so I can revisit the Doon family as an adult and see if the magic is still there This is a sweet ittle book that will be perfect for Halloween read aloud It reminded me a ittle of the Paddington books in pacing and the fact that each chapter is a Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery little story within the story At only 75 pages it s also a very uick read While it is a bit dated in attitude than anything the story stands up to the test of time The only thing it would benefit from are some nice witchy illustrations Sweetittle old fashioned chapter book about a family who takes in a ittle ost witch Yes at times it slips toward the saccharine and the story is definitely dated But for the most part this is just a nice story about the power of The Day Fidel Died love Some readers seem to take issue with how Felina is changed seeing this as a kind of brainwashing or repression of her interesting differences Certainly a skilled author would have spent time showing how the family changed too But this story is not one about a child from a different culture who is repressed into our society s modes of behavior It isn t about culture at all the author never shows us what the witches society isike because it doesn t matter It just represents Felina s inability to be part of a normal family I grant you that s normal for 1960 The story is part of the family of stories of children damaged you that s normal for 1960 The story is part of the family of stories of children damaged distanced by their early experiences who are accepted oved and taught to be part of society again Think of Understood Betsy The Good Master The Secret Garden etc BTW This Story Is The OPPOSITE story is the OPPOSITE the trope about the repressed people who take in the orphaned stranger and find they are changed by the child instead of the other way around Anne of Green Gables changes Marilla far than Marilla civilizes her Heidi opens her grandfather s heart to ove and friendship again In fourth grade I had a magical teacher Her name was Mrs Darflinger She had flaming red hair much ike my own and dressed in colors I had only dreamed of She ran a tight ship but if we had reached all of our goals for the day the final half hour of class was dedicated to istening as she read to us from books that still dance in my memory October was filled with stories of chilly nights spooky goblins and eerie adventures as we worked our way to what was hands down the best class party every yearthat of Halloween The Gulp!: The Seven-Day Crash Course to Master Fear and Break Through Any Challenge last book of the month was by far my favorite The Little Leftover Witch by Florence Laughlin.
