Precious and the Boo Hag

Authors: Patricia C. McKissack and Onawumi Jean Moss

Author: Precious had been up all night with a stomachache.

Why you should read this book: Part folklore, part cautionary tale, and part scary campfire story, this book tell of Precious's battle of wits with Pruella, the hideous, shape-shifting Boo Hag of the prairie. Pruella works her magic, but Precious remembers her mother's warning not to invite anyone into the house. A great story of self-reliance as well as guarding against malevolent strangers.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You've been leading the fight to end discrimination against witches.
