    One thought on “No Such Thing as a Witch”

    1. I figure I must have read this when I was about ten. Any book I can remember after three and a half decades must be at least halfway decent, right? Actually I recalled this book and The Witch's Buttons a couple years ago; I looked up some info about Ruth Chew online and was astonished to learn she'd passed away just a few days before. Now that my daughter's four, I tracked a used copy of this title (long since out of print) and we read it over the past week, three chapters a night. It's a sweet [...]

    2. Yesterday I picked this up along with another Ruth Chew classic at a used bookstore and read it while basking in the afternoon sunshine here in Paradise. It was cute, short, full of kids and animals, and kids turned into animals; and a happy neighborhood witch who lets the kids call her Maggie.I enjoyed this along with a pint of ale. No seriously, I did just read a wholesome kid's book while drinking a "Back in Black" IPA from 21st Amendment Brewery That's an example of California decadence I gu [...]

    3. My son interrupted my nightly reading because he insisted I read this. I’m glad he sees the joys of sharing good books with others. I love witches and chocolate 🍫 , so it was really adorable!

    4. Meh. A harmless, pointless little tale about two siblings who believe their next door neighbour is a witch based on her delicious fudge and its effects on people who otherwise dislike animals. The chaptering of the book was annoying; I know beginning readers like short chapters but they were so short that it disrupted the reading process. Ms Chew seems to confuse "witch" with "animal hoarder". As other reviewers have noted, the parents in this book, like The Wednesday Witch are totally oblivious [...]

    5. My daughter struggled to read in first grade and wasn't doing so well in second grade either until she discovered Ruth Chew's books. Like magic, my child suddenly loved reading, and by the time she'd read every Ruth Chew book that existed, she was "a reader."Now I'm tutoring a second grader who has found the same sort of magic in Chew's work. In this particular story, Nora and her brother Ted, are told by their mother -- over and over -- that there's "no such thing as a witch." The two children [...]

    6. A fun book for middle grades. There are lots of animals in this one, maybe a great book for children who love animals. Not a very exciting book as far as magical stories go.

    7. Ruth Chew's books were my favorites as a young girl. I was super excited to find ebook editions of her classic witchy tales. I still have an original copy of The Wednesday Witch :)

    8. My favorite Ruth Chew book is still The Witch's Buttons. Chew wrote this book earlier in her writing career (her sophomore book); the characters and plot aren't very well developed. Neither is the magic.

    9. When I was a child I had most, if not all, of Ruth Chew's books. I must have really enjoyed them as I kept buying them. But at some point, unlike many of my favorite children's books, I got rid of all the Chew books so I must have recognized they weren't quite on the same level as some of the classics and they weren't ageless. That recollection about matches my experience with this reread. Its a pleasant book and I can see why at age 8 I might have enjoyed it. But it doesn't hold up ultimately f [...]

    10. This re-issue of the 1970 story is a guileless tale. Mrs. Brown, a benevolent witch, befriends Tad and Nora, the brother and sister next door. They are intrigued by her many animals and soon discover that the fudge she shares with them gives them magical powers: they can understand and talk to animals and even turn into animals if they eat enough of it. Their clueless parents can’t seem to follow the escapades going on under their very noses. When the delicatessen owner threatens Mrs. Brown wi [...]

    11. Nora and her brother, Tad, begin to suspect that their neighbor is a witch, though their mother scoffs at their suspicion. When they eat the very tasty fudge that she gives them, their suspicions are confirmed, as they can now talk to animals. The siblings now must help their neighbor, who is an animal lover and takes in all kinds of animals to her home, to protect those animals from the less-than-caring attitudes of the neighborhood adults. not bad- was a little slow and didn't really hold me m [...]

    12. Cute chapter book good for 2nd or 3rd graders. I didn't read Ms. Chew's books as a child so I don't have any sort of nostalgia for them. They've been reissued so I thought I'd check them out to be able to recommend them (or not) to my library patrons. I think kids would like these, if they're into not-scary fantasy (a la Magic Tree House.) This one features animals too, so animal lovers would like it. Reading it as an adult, I'm struck by the ease with which the parents let their two kids go ove [...]

    13. The idea behind this short chapter book is very sweet and clever. A brother and sister who, with the help of some magical fudge, get to talk and interact with animals. I didn't love it, though. It really bothered me that they stole so many pieces of fudge and Maggie never said anything to them. Also, the kids lied repeatedly to the adults in the book. I liked it well enough, however, to try other books by the author. I'm guessing that the more books I read of the series, the more I will like the [...]

    14. This book was ok, wasn't anything exceptional. This book is about two siblings who meet a new neighbor who lets them eat fudge. If they eat one piece they like animals, if they eat two that can talk to the animals, three and they act like one, and four they become one. The fudge wears off after a few hours. The end. For second and third graders. Boys and girls, has the feel of an older book which is ok, just really doesn't have a whole lot to say about the time and place of the book.

    15. If we believe Ruth Chew, there IS a such thing as a witch. Also according to Ruth Chew, witches are nice and not evil, and they have cool belongings and cool abilities. I don't remember particularly what the witch in this book did and had, but I'm sure the kids involved had an exciting adventure that their parents never even suspected.

    16. Still waiting for The Wednesday Witch to be reissued. This was very much like the other Ruth Chew books, although my present day self was a little alarmed at the children being ENCOURAGED to hang out with crazy cat lady neighbor who gave them mind altering fudge. Sure, kids, go to the zoo with her! That said, I am glad to have the four of these.

    17. I'm not sure if I read this as a kid. I'm waiting for What the Witch Left because I fondly remember the seven league boots. Anyway, this is a wonderful story. It's definitely something I would have loved as a child and I love it now. Fudge to get people to like animals! A little mystery and adventure! So cute. Written for mid readers I'd guess, but without the annoying repetitiveness.

    18. No Such Thing as a Witch contains just enough magic to ignite readers’ imagination. Reminiscent of Mrs. Piggle Wiggle stories and Daniel Pinkwater’s new Mrs. Noodlekugel series, this easy to read magical fantasy with black and white spare black and white illustrations, will be a sure hit with early chapter book Magic Tree House fans.

    19. I read this when I was a child and loved it. I read it again, some 20 years later and found that it lost none of the magic. It didn't feel dated, nor did it feel to childish, nor too scary for a small child (I didn't find it scary at all). I will read this to my children some day.

    20. Children will love Chew's magic added to an everyday life, and this one will appeal to animal loves especially. I can honestly say finding that these were finally back in print was the best news I'd heard in quite some time. Perfect chapter books for 7 and 8 year olds, or read aloud as early as 5.

    21. How can you go wrong with magic fudge that let's you talk to animals or even be one? I read this book as a child and it stuck with me, so I thought it was time to read it again.

    22. Some very strange things begin to happen when two children get to know their unusual next-door-neighbor.

    23. A very fun children's book that combines a witch, delicious fudge, and children who with a little sweet treat can talk to animals or even become one! But just for a while, as the magic wears off.

    24. Two kids think their neighbor is a witch. They befriend her, and she gives them enchanted fudge that brings about some interesting changes.

    25. Ruth Chew was one of my favorite authors during my childhood. I have fond memories of reading her Witch books. They fostered my love for children's literature.
