KIRKUS REVIEW

Only those who are familiar with the previous books about Dorrie (Dorrie's Magic, Dorrie and the Blue Witch) will realize that she is more than a little girl in witch's clothes but has done some dabbling in magic. Here, assisted by her pet black cat, she puts on a spur of the moment production in her living room. The play is pretty much of a flop; however the repartee, as the well-intentioned Dorrie keeps getting in Cook's way and accidentally disrupts (then straightens out) her mother's costume party plans, may call for another encore. The story is not up to the last two, but the illustrations of the waifish witch in a Victorian haunted house are similar and still amusing.
