THE DOOR BY THE STAIRCASE, by Katherine Marsh

Door

The story: Mary wants nothing more than to escape from the orphanage–so who cares if the old lady that comes to adopt her looks like a witch? Trouble is…Madame Z IS a witch, the kind that eats children. Now Mary’s really going to have to use her head (and maybe her feet) to keep herself and her new friend Jacob out of the witch’s clutches–and out of her cook-pot.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like a kid-vs-witch story, or a story where even a witch can decide to make better choices, this one’s for you!
