“Bock & Stella: Battle of the Baby Witches” by Kahoe King Amimoto, Nahe’olu Clive Amimoto, & Karin Amimoto Ingersoll

After perishing in each of their respective stories, Hansel and Gretel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Sleeping Beauty, the three witches shrank. These “baby” witches crawl out of a portal in the Oak tree in Stella’s front yard, hoping to return to their original size and power by casting a spell which requires the hair of a human girl. The witches, however, have a difficult time getting close to Stella’s hair because she is an avid reader and knows each witch’s strength and weakness.

In the end, Stella realizes that being different can be both empowering and fun.
