Dorrie, the Little Witch Series by Patricia Coombs (1962 – 1992)

“This is Dorrie.  She is a witch.  A little witch.  Her hat is always on crooked.  Sometimes her shoes are on the wrong feet.  Sometimes she has on one pink sock and one blue striped sock.  Sometimes she can’t find any socks at all.”

Does Dorrie, the Little Witch sound like a someone you might know?  Dorrie.jpg

Dorrie and her trusty cat Gink, often try to use her magic to help with practical things, like cleaning her room, changing the weather for a picnic, or helping everyone have happy dreams at night — but something always goes wrong!  She’s a bit like Amelia Bedelia, if you’ve already met her in your reading adventures.  And just like Amelia, things happily work out right in the end!
