KIRKUS REVIEW

Once there was a little girl who didn't like her family"" introduces the barefooted and bug-eyed one on page one of this story-picture book in the firm tradition of psychological cartoonists like Steig. The little girl decides to enlist the assistance of the town with to turn everybody into something. She decides that soup would be good. But as the witchly waters brew, the ingrate turns...which reversal infuriates Miss Witch. It all turns out o.k. because the witch gets potted to soup and little girl goes home and likes her family. Miss Scott, twenty and related to Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Sally Scott, should stick to her art and give up on psychology and story. Good for gifts, for those who do.
