Synopsis

Manuela has lost her sheep, and their tracks lead right to Alice Nizzy Nazzy's fence. But Alice is so mean and so ugly that people say she's a witch who likes to eat children! Will Manuela have to face the beady-eyed old woman? "Johnston removes Baba Yaga, aka Alice Nizzy Nazzy, from the Russian forest and places her in a roadrunner-footed, adobe hut in the desert near Santa Fe.... Engaging." -- School Library Journal "Tomie dePaola has wonderful fun with Johnston's breezy text, serving up a feast of laugh-out-loud images. 'Alice Nizzy Nazzy'is some kind of snazzy!" -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
