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.
