Once there was a good witch who had a magic jumping pot with one leg and one arm. The jumping pot could make lots of potions, but it only likes to make good spells.the witch had two sons and they were mean one day when she came home, the two sons slammed the door on her because they didnít want to get caught using the jumping pot to make a potion! The pot jumped and ran all around the kitchen to escape because it only wanted to make good potions.

No, I did not like this book because there is some killing in it, It is too violent. I did like the part when the pot begins to hop around the kitchen. That was my favorite part. I liked the old good witch because I am good and I like to see good people. Good people donít rob banks and stuff. One of my brothers is mean. I wish he was good. The killing picture was sad; the pictures of the pot spilling potion and a heart that was very, very hairy were happier.

I recommend this book to my brother. He will like it because he likes scary stuff, and this book has scary parts in it. He will also like this book because he loves Harry Potter books. This book reminds me of Harry Potter because of his wand. My brotherís favorite part may be when the pot starts jumping around.
