The Witch’s Walking Stick by Susan Meddaugh
A witch's walking stick is almost out of magic, but she's determined to squeeze just a little more nastiness out of it. Before she can do more evil, however, a playful dog makes off with the stick and it winds up in the hands of Margaret, a mistreated orphan. With a few humorous twists and turns, Margaret and the pooch soon set things to rights and keep those last scraps of magic out of the witch's hands.
Recommended for Kindergarten and up.
