Overview
Saturn doesn’t really mind being a witch. She just wants to be a different kind of witch. She’s tired of wearing black. She doesn’t like riding on a broom. And, most important, she doesn’t want to scare people or play mean tricks on them—she wants to make friends! But even her next-door neighbors are afraid of her. If only she had the chance, Saturn knew she could help people instead of frightening them. It was time for a new look, and Halloween was the perfect time to change! But Saturn soon discovers that she needs to change more than how she looks. Will she find a way?

About the author
Lora Crommett was often called a tomboy when she was a child. Her favorite activities were climbing trees and reading. She loved sitting among the branches of a cherry tree in her family’s orchard with her nose in a book, eating cherries and spitting the pits at the chickens that roamed below. When she grew up, her love of reading led her to study writing at Citrus College, USC, and then UCLA. Her son and daughter appeared as characters in her first story, “Sometimes Math Is a Coffee Can Full of Sand,” which was published in American Baby magazine, and began a career writing for national magazines and newspapers—including a favorite travel article written for the Los Angeles Times about (what else?) climbing a tree on the island of Molokai to pet a giraffe. A teacher of early childhood education, Lora taught reading-readiness in California state preschool and kindergarten, and helped children develop a joy of books by writing down stories they made up in class, then making them into little books to take home. She also directed a preschool program for the City of Monrovia Parks and Recreation Department. When she and her husband, Butch, moved to north San Diego County, Lora retired from teaching and began writing The Blue Witch, her first chapter book. She is currently working on a sequel, in addition to a bilingual book in English and Spanish for Hispanic children learning to read. While she doesn’t climb trees any longer, Lora still loves sitting beneath them to read and write. She says that’s where her imagination really takes flight.
