Witch Tales is a book that features stories of witches that are slightly different from the usual witch stories.
Summary Of The Book
Tales of witches instantly evoke images of women with hooked noses and crazy hair, who brew nasty potions and place hexes on people. Such stories often involve tales of evil women with magical powers who are always on the lookout for victims.
But the stories in Witch Tales feature witches of a different kind, because in this book, the stories are about nice witches who use their powers for good purposes. As one of the characters in the book, a witch named Zischka puts it, witches do a lot of things besides cooking up potions and casting spells.
Witch Tales provides a different perspective on magical creatures, helping children break their stereotyped visions about them.
