The Blue Ruby was gone! Stolen! All because the banish-bandit spell had not been renewed. Such a catastrope called for a secret meeting in the little room in the tower; for the Ruby gave the thieves, Uncle King Dimly and Mad Mac, the power to turn all the Witches and Wizards into weathervanes, toads, and park benches. Barred from the meeting by the Big Witch, Dorrie and her cat Gink were suddenly locked out of the house and caught in a storm. The little witch's search for shelter will hold young readers spellbound as they follow her delightfully spooky adventures, including a ghostly but merry chase through a haunted house and the dark, eerie woods.
