early gifts

I had tea with fellow author and neighbor Ann Downer, who gave me the wonderful gift of her son's discarded Ruth Chew books!

I LOVED these books when I was a child. They are all about witches and magic in a fun and exciting but not scary way. I wonder why they didn't make a comeback with the Harry Potter craze? I wish they would. They are all out of print, which is what makes this little bunch of books pretty priceless. Except now I want to get all of them and am spending hours on eBay trying to track them down.

Ooh, I LOVED all her books! What a great gift! Maybe I still have a few at my parents' house...

My favorite of all time - and I read it many many times as a child - The Witches Buttons. Which one was your favorite. Loved these books.
