Everyone knows that it isn't always easy having a working mom, but this girl's mom has a job that keeps her whole family jumping!

After all, when your mom is always flying off to meetings or mixing strange potions in her laboratory, life can be both trying and exciting. And even through Mom throws birthday parties that are out of this world, there are still those bats and frogs who always follow her around.

Peter Glassman's enchanting story, brewed together with Tedd Arnold's bewitching pictures, is sure to cast its spell on young readers, whoever and whatever their mothers may be.

Here, the mother's chemistry set includes a glowing caldron into which she tosses flies and green goo, and on Career Day she upstages other rather weird parents (among them a Frankenstein and the Creature from the Black Lagoon) by taking her daughter's classmates on a broom ride.

"This gigglesome picture book about a 'working mom' who's a witch fairly bursts with luminous illustrations, riotous counterparts to the deadpan text," noted <EMPHASIS TYPE=
