KIRKUS REVIEW

 Having trouble making ends meet, witch Wittilda kisses her 47 cats good-bye to go job-hunting, but promptly gets into trouble when, as a newly hired hairdresser, she arranges Mrs. Hatrack's hair into a web, complete with spider. Working for a pizza place goes better, thanks to Wittilda's supernatural advantage--her broom. Despite some slapstick adventures, plus rescuing a 48th cat along the way, she runs her route faster than the other contenders, wins the job, and carries pizza home to feed her cats. A slight tale, lively in the telling, with vibrantly comical Hopperesque illustrations featuring the dowdy, earnest witch and her delightful slew of bug-eyed cats. (Picture book. 4-8)
