The Widow's Broom.

The author weaves a tale of mischief and intrigue, from the portentous opening illustration of dangling legs, tumbling broom and plummeting witch's hat and cape to the closing portrait of Minna Shaw nodding gently and peacefully in her rocking chair. Minna stalwartly defends the magical broom's activities against the rising complaints by her neighbors. The subtle illustrations, artfully executed in black-and-white duotone, echo the Van Allsburg tradition. All Ages. Reviewed by Joann H.
