The Witch Of Blackberry Bottom

‘A witch she is. Don’t go near her.’

Down in Blackberry Bottom lives Miss Slade, a strange – and rather dirty – old lady. All the village children think she’s a witch. But Patsy and Jim like her and her six dogs, her donkey and other assorted animals.

Miss Slade may not be a witch, but she’s not what she seems either. And when her secret is discovered, trouble is not far away. Only Patsy and Jim, with a little help from the animals, can save the day.
