Wednesday Wonders #1

New Post Series!

Wednesday Wonders will be brief posts where one or more of us will reenact a scene from a movie or book or TV show or play or whatever we happen to be wondering about at the time. :) It won't be weekly, but should pop up at least once a month. 

Haley decided to pose for the first Wednesday Wonders post. She is recreating the cover illustration from one of our favorite books The Wednesday Witch by Ruth Chew. 
With the exception of the "black dress."

Can you find the book in the photo? Did I do a good job?


"Mary Jane's mother has told her not to let any strangers in the house while she's away. Now someone is outside ringing the doorbell. mary Jane looks through the peep hole and sees a short, fat woman wearing a long black dress and a tall pointed hat. 'She looks just like a witch,' Mary Jane thnks. The woman outside is a witch, and Mary Jane is about to meet her face to face."


One of my favorite parts of the book is when the witch shrinks down so she can hide out and live in Mary Jane's doll house.
That is a great scene! Mary Jane has everything tidy, but the witch messes everything up so it looks like an earthquake hit.
Yeah, Mary Jane got in a lot of trouble for that.
Don't forget Cinders the little cat!

Best wishes! Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Oh my goodness! That is one of my all time favorite children's books. I still have my original copy (probably from the sixties). Thank you for the smile. What a wonderful reenactment!

    1. Yay! Great book! Glad you enjoyed the reenactment! Our copy has a copyright of 1969. :)
