From the introduction: "For centuries witches have brewed potions and cast spells to work their magic: enchanting lovers, curing disease, harming enemies, even becoming invisible and flying. Here is a wide selection of their recipes drawn from the lore of witches throughout the world. Only experienced witches should attempt to perform any of these enchantments. Even most innocent-sounding potion could be very dangerous to a beginner in magic! And if the spell is not worked correctly in every detail, it is sure to backfire! So pseudo-witches, please beware!" Illustrated with full page, three color, drawings by Maggie Jarvis. 62 pp. ISBN: B000Q9PXXO.
