While Big Witch prepares for her big tea party, Dorrie attempts to babysit a baby goblin and discovers that even little goblins can be big trouble.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

In this tale of the little witch, Dorrie finds a goblin in the laundry basket. The Big Witch is just about to host a party, and she doesn't want any goblins in the way. So Dorrie offers to look after it. Of course, that goes as well as one would expect...

I found the illustrations in this one to be a bit weak in places, especially when it came to the Short High Sorcerer (gotta love that name, though). But the story is entertaining, and Dorrie manages to save the day with her ingenuity.

I'm really enjoying revisiting this little witch's stories from my childhood!

Premise: 3/5

Writing: 3/5
