Lynda | 3 comments This book was pretty long despite the fact that it was a children's book. I believe the main character was a little girl named Nora and she lived in the woods with her father who was a wizard, and her mother who was a witch. The family would often be visited by a peddler who knew of their magic. There were illustrations in the book and it may have been written in the 1940s-50s. If you could please help me find this book, I would greatly appreciate it.

Lynda--if you bump this once a month or so, so that it stays fresh (only way I can think of to describe it) in people's minds, you might finally find that certain, special someone who recognizes it.

The Witch Family is the click for Nathalia's suggestion.

Lynda | 3 comments Hi Nathalia, unfortunately that isn't the same story. However, it does sound like an interesting read!
