This fast-moving sequel to Piggie Pie! (1995) follows demanding, bunny-eating Gritch the witch as she (following a crash-landing on her broom) shops for new transport. After consulting a wittily rendered address book (among the entries is one ""Bea Witch, Samantha Lane, Darrin, Conn.""), she ends up at a wacky car dealership. More frightening than Gritch is the foxy salesman's plaid jacket as he goes through a ""Who's on First?.""--style routine with brooms labeled ""Witch 1"" and ""Witch 2."" Finally the warty, purple-clad shopper settles on ""something hip. Something hot. Something happening!"" She peels out in a fast car and absconds with the fox, and his future doesn't look very secure. The book, like its predecessor, is silly, fun, and revved-up for reading aloud.
