“Tilly Witch” Influences

As a child, having my parents read to me before bed was one of my favorite parts of the day. One book, in particular, I wanted to read over and over again was “Tilly Witch.” I read this book so many times, that at some point I memorized the entire storyline for line, yet I still insisted on reading it each night. Written by Don Freeman and published in 1969, “Tilly Witch” tells the story of a witch who forgot how to be mean, and can no longer frighten children on Halloween. She has to return to witch school to relearn how to be mean. Tilly’s story and the messages revolving around the non-conformity it carries have stuck with me from a very young age.
