Continuation :

Jay kept their pace on their way to the pumping patch when they came across a rather unusual bush. It seemed to have eyes, and a trail, and it was incredibly furry. Jay was tempted: what if... They considered. Jay approached slowly and started working on it with the pair of golden scissors. What will come out if it? Who knows...

“In a deep, dark cave there lived twenty-nine of the meanest, scariest, ugliest, wickedest witches that ever were. There they lived and there they stayed, brewing their evil potions and raising their evil bats and buzzards. They practiced zooming around on broomsticks and screeching their hideous screeches. They pulled the tails of their cats and bit each other out of sheer nastiness. They turned flowers into poison mushrooms and planted them all around the cave.” - #TheRabbiAndTheTwentyNineWitches, based on a Talmudic legend retold and illustrated by #MarilynHirsh. This isn’t technically a Halloween story, but with so many fantastic witchy images it’s one of my favorite October reads! A nearby village is plagued by the twenty-nine witches who ride every full moon... unless it rains. When a grandmother tells the Rabbi she wants to see a full moon before she dies, he uses this information to form a clever plan to vanquish the witches for once and for all! I love the simple illustration style and the cultural aspects (like the men dancing with the handkerchiefs between their hands) as well as the spookiness! #Halloween #VintageHalloweenBooKs #ChildrensLiterature #ChildrensBooks #PictureBooks #KidsBooks #KidLit #ChildrensBookIllustration #PictureBookIllustration #BookIllustration #Illustration #Bookworm #Bibliophile #Bookstagram #31daysofhalloween #October #BookCollection #BookCollector #Witches #WitchBooks #WitchPictureBook #TalmudicLegend #JewishFolktales

Bondi beach tram stop 1907. Work in progress. The details are so fun yet so agonizing to include. Strange how they can be both? I guess if there were no deadlines they’d just be fun. 😅

Grandad knows of a secret giant. He’s tall, has large hands and feet but he also has feelings just like you and me. He’s the only giant in town and what a kind and helpful giant he is.
Oh this book is so lovely and visually an absolute delight. If you haven’t read this book already my girls and I think you should find it and enjoy it too. -
