The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams
By Rhonda Hayter
Dial Books for Young Readers, April, 2010
Abbie Adams is a regular eleven-year old girl with normal problems like a really strict fifth-grade teacher. (Meet Miss Linegar. Rhymes with vinegar.) She’s chronically behind in homework, forced to keep a big secret from her very best friend and hoping like heck she can remember all her lines in the drama club play. But Abbie also happens to be a witch
and in addition to everything else, she has to cope with stuff like her little brother morphing into a werewolf and trying to eat his first-grade teacher...not to mention figuring out what exactly is up with her very, very peculiar cat.
What inspired me to write this book?
When my adorable, cherubic six-year old had a monster meltdown one day, I remarked to my husband that it was just as if he had turned into a werewolf...and my idea for Abbie and her family was born.
