Amy and Clarissa love to tell stories about Old Witch, until one day they decide she is just too mean and wicked. Drawing a rickety old house upon a barren glass hill, the girls exile Old Witch there with the warning that she'd better be good - or else no Halloween. For company, they draw her a Little Witch Girl and a Weeny Witch Baby.
Old Witch tries to be good, but anyone would get up to no good in a place as lonely as the glass hill, as Amy and Clarissa find out when Old Witch "magics" them into her world, a world of make-believe made real.
