In the vein of her distinctive African American folktales from collections like HER STORIES comes a thrillingly creepy witch tale from award-winning author Virginia Hamilton, with art by Barry Moser.
Virginia Hamilton draws upon her extensive knowledge of folktales in this "scare tale," in which young James Lee discovers his Uncle Big Anthony has been cursed by a Wee Winnie Witch, who rides him like a broom across the night sky When the witch captures James Lee and takes him along, Mamma Granny knows just what to do. She fills the Wee Winnie Witch's skin, which the Wee Winnie removes before her ride, with hot pepper. When it's back in place, Wee Winnie's burnt to a crisp Full of Virginia Hamilton's poetic vernacular and authentic details, this is a perfect thrill for any spooky night.
