Story behind the story: "When I was a kid," says author Rhonda Hayter, "I hated when somebody tried to teach me something in a book. I wanted to read for fun, I didn’t want education. I got enough of that in school! When I wrote The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams, I made it a funny, breezy read. So nobody minds when they learn about a great American, pick up interesting vocabulary and get introduced to other books. That’s because I snuck it all into a fast-paced romp about a normal fifth grader who happens to be a witch, with problems like a little brother who melts down, turns into a werewolf and tries to eat his teacher."
