Our Grandma is a Witch is a rhyming story about a grandmother who is really a witch. She does not cast spells or fly around on a broomstick, but her words have the tendency to magically come true. When she says that a fourth helping of ice cream will make your throat ache, then without a doubt, that is what it will do. Or when she shouts, “You’re going to fall down!”, you are already lying on your back on the ground underneath the tree. Luckily, all kinds of sicknesses and bumps are healed like magic when Grandma helps. Her homemade pie is such strong witchcraft that it can only be described using magic words.
