Dorrie was looking for a magic recipe to clean up her room.... "Abracadabra, skittery doo!" she said, pouring some blue stuff into a bowl. "Stop it!" cried Cook. "Stop it, right now!" "Stop what? What's the matter?" asked Dorrie. Cook stamped her foot and waved a spoon in the air. "Three white ducks are the matter! There are three white ducks swimming around in my soup kettle!" But Cook cried out too late. Dorrie had started the magic working and although everything was going wrong, she couldn't make it stop. Maybe if she poured a little more of everything into the magic brew...… (mer)

One of the treasured artefacts of my childhood, Patricia Coombs' series about Dorrie - a little witch whose hat was always on crooked, whose socks were always mismatched, and whose penchant for trouble never failed to produce an adventure - kept me continuously entertained. I must have checked out some of these Dorrie books from the library a hundred times! I recall particularly enjoying Dorrie and the Blue Witch, although every entry in the series was superb. Imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered, these many years later, that Coombs had authored twenty Dorrie books, some of them - like this first installment - completely unknown to me!

When her mother, the Big Witch, goes into town one Saturday to do some shopping, she asks Dorrie to be good, and to clean her room. Of course everything is more fun when you use magic, and Dorrie - accompanied by her faithful cat Gink - decides to use the Big Witch's colorful powders to accomplish her task. Her haphazard potion-making produces the inevitable mishaps - from turning the entire house blue, to changing Cook into a horse - and Dorrie learns that some things (like cleaning) require work, not magic...

A charming beginning to a magical series, Dorrie's Magic offers a fantastic variant of a story many young readers will instantly recognize. Coombs' adorable illustrations are a perfect match for her story, conveying the quirky but loving atmosphere of Dorrie's home. How I wish that these books would be reprinted, so today's young readers might enjoy their magic! ( )
