Alice Nizzy Nazzy

PreS-Gr 1–A child-eating witch straight out of Russian folklore comes to the American Southwest, thanks to Johnston and dePaola, who put her into an adobe hut and create a landscape that includes prickly pear. Readers beware: If you fall into Alice Nizzy Nazzy’s cooking pot, remember that good children taste bad to witches.
VERDICT This reissue is a gift for those who need their Baba Yaga to be a little bit closer and the landscape a little more familiar.
