Once upon a childhood, you will sometimes find a book that sparks the imagination. Growing up pre-Harry Potter, mine was Dorrie And The Blue Witch by Patricia Coombs. My mom found the Dorrie book at a library used book sale and brought it home.
DORRIE AND THE WITCH DOCTOR ♥ Dorrie decides to make the extra effort to be good all day (even when her Aunt Agra comes to visit) but when Dorrie suddenly gets sick, the Witch Doctor comes with some unusual cures for some unusual illnesses.
Classic illustration of 'Dorrie' the Little Witch and her mother, the Big Witch as they ascend the attic stairs (in search of a solution to their uninvited guest)! "Dorrie and the Blue Witch" written and illustrated by the marvelous Patricia Coombs.
