THE ATTIC WITCH

Confined to her room on a rainy day, a little girl climbs through a trapdoor into the attic, where a witch beckons her (and the cat) through a mirror and into a wild broomstick adventure. They battle a dragon on a lake (the cat is rescued from the monster's tongue by a sneeze when they tickle its nose with a broomstick), frolic in an amusement park, and finally land home in bed. The scribbly black and white drawings are brightened by large splashes of pink and yellow, and agitated enough to keep the pages turning -- but unless you're looking for still another wordless picture narrative you can consider this compensatory fantasy a flighty extra.
