Gritch the Witch is hungry and her batscotti andeek! Spresso snack isn`t quite doing the trick. She wants a more filling, furry snack. She wants bunny. On her way to the Farmer in the Dell`s rabbit-ridden place, she and her broomstick experience a crash landing, shortly after her old broom stalls in midair: " It spit. Sputtered. Coughed. Chugged. Choked. And then it gave out a long gasping, gurgly gurgle, did one loop-d-loop, and tailspinned toward ground zero. " Desperate for a new vehicle, she ends up at Foxy`s, a used-vehicle lot marked by signs such as " Foxy`s: We`ll take you for a ride. " Foxy tries to sell her a magic carpet from " A Lad in the East," then he attempts to unload Cinderella`s pumpkin coach: " Very low mileage. Used only once. Runs like a charm. " The fox`s cheesy sales tactics don`t go over very well: " Save the spiel, cut the chit-chat, and can the flim-flam, Foxy! " She shouts. Her fury only escalates when she asks, " Which one is the one I want? " --Catapulting them into an infuriating " Who`s on first" -style repartee over " Witch 1," the name of a certain model of broom. Zoom Broom, Margie Palatini`s over-the-top sequel to the immensely popular Piggie Pie, is as smart-alecky and fast-paced as they come, and Howard Fine`s colorful, action-packed, almost grotesquely intense illustrations are perfect for this wild and witchy ride. (Ages 4 to 9) --Karin Snelson
