That wacky witch has haunted me for years!
1 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember Halloween, 2nd grade, sitting in our darkened classroom as we watched the "Winter of the Witch". All these years I never knew the title but thought it was very familiar because my mother had bought me the book, "Old Witch and the Polka Dot Ribbon" and I had read the book so many times it eventually fell apart. I remember then, in 2nd grade, trying to explain to my friends afterward that the characters were familiar but the story was not quite right, and no one knew what I was talking about! Now, I realize that this movie was based on the original children's book, "Old Black Witch" by Wende and Harry Devlin who were also the authors of my old witch book which was a sort of sequel. Oh, I loved these books! Anyone interested in watching it again, it is available on google videos as well as youtube. I just watched it for the 2nd time in nearly 40 years, and it was such a treat!
