In a way, though, both of these problems suit the story which is this:
In 1929, our protagonist, Beatrice Goode, was 10 years old when the stock market crashed. Her mother, who should have passed on her witchly wisdom to her daughter, was much too distraught over the family's reversal of fortune. They had to sell everything just to stay afloat and life after the crash was drastically different than life before. Beatrice had to create her spell book in an old novel.
Without further ado, I give you The Lost Spell Book of Beatrice Goode:
I did a video too, but the lighting was terrible!
Anyway, it is a fun book appropriate for this spooky season! I don't think I'll be selling this one, but perhaps I'll use it record Halloween memories.
Happy making, friends!
