This is a humorous story with lots of child appeal, and attractive illustrations that work well. What I particularly like about this story was its subversion of stereotypes -- not only is the witch perfectly nice and friendly, but Frankie is a girl who wears dungarees and the Brave Knight certainly isn't — School Librarian
