A little lost witch undergoes a magical transformation when she's loved by a human family in this heartwarming story.

When Felina, a little witch, breaks her broom on Halloween and can't fly home, she is stuck with the Doon family and their black cat, Itchabody, for an entire year. Although she's homesick and unhappy, the Doon parents and their daughter, Lucinda, do their best to make Felina feel welcome. (And she has no trouble with Itchabody at all!) As time passes, the mischievous Felina learns what it means to be part of a family--and how, with love, she will always belong.

This timeless tale, originally published in 1971 and cherished ever since, brims with witchy whimsy and will find a home in the hearts of a new generation of readers.

I hated this book, but I also didn't realize that it was first published in the 60s. My library just got a copy with a revamped cover and a new sticker. I went through it thinking no kid these days would like this. It's condescending and I think it's horrible that to fit in with this family Felina loses her sense of self to the extent that she even changes her name. It was too old fashioned.
