Do you know about the Word Witch? Has she cast her spell over you?
She can lasso with a limerick, haunt with a haiku and wrap you tight in a rhyme, quick as lightning.
Her cauldron is a dictionary, her wand a mighty pen, and she stirs her words at midnight, making tempting treats for children, to please and tease and tantalise them with imaginary treasures and delectable dreams.
She weaves words into adventures, sets verses wildly dancing, makes similes sing and stamp their feet and poems purr like pussycats who’ve eaten all the cream.
Her name is Margaret Mahy. These are her spells.
