A goblin left on Dorrie's doorstep is the latest occasion for the little witch's helter-skelter conjurations. Though she wants to keep him at first, Dorrie becomes disenchanted after he breaks her window, throws jam on her ceiling, and Fills the house with thunder and lightning. Turning the magic book to a de-goblining recipe she accordingly throws together bottles and cauldron and spell ("Abracadabra fiddledee doo/ Hocus this pocus ten times two/ Goblin magic mess undo") until BOOM! out of the cauldron emerges her friend the Low High Sorcerer, who had been changed into a goblin by a wicked witch. Like Dorrie's other adventures, this one ends with tea and tricks for all the good witches, and Dorrie gives the best performance of all. More domesticated demonology for Dottle, with fine-lined, subtly colored pictures that maintain the new high level established in Dorrie and the Birthday Eggs (1971, p. 638, J-240). (Kirkus Reviews)
Dorrie is a little witch. Her socks never match, sometimes her shoes are on the wrong feet and her hat is inside out.
