Childhood Favorites...The Resident Witch

Childhood favorites. Everyone has a favorite book or author from childhood. A book that touched them or changed them. A book that perhaps initiated their love of reading and put them on the path of libraries and learning.

Childhood Favorites is a monthly series focusing on beloved books from the past. 

Donald Zolan, Quiet Time.

Witcheena, little witch in training who wants to be a Junior Witch, lives in a barn with her aunt and a hundred cats. Well, more like 26 or something like that. She flies around on her broom at night, but wishes she could have a friend. When she changes her appearance to be around other children, she meets a girl named Nancy. Witcheena loves spending time with Nancy, but knows that she can't do magic or show her powers in front of anyone.

This was such a strange little story. I have no idea where it was purchased or why it showed up in our house. I think it was one of my sister's books, but I have it in a box. I loved this little gem and the lovely pencil sketch drawings.

What about you? What is one of your childhood favorites?


  1. I think I read that one too!

    1. This has always had a fond place in my heart. It was a joy to find it in a box and revisit!
