The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lizzie is an archetypal twelve-year-old dreamer who wanders around with her head in the clouds. Despite her family’s failure to believe her, Lizzie makes friends with a witch with exciting, funny and often charming consequences. Anyone aged seven to nine will like this book enormously. First published back in 1973, this book will be enjoyed now as it was then.

Synopsis

Lizzie Dripping by Helen Cresswell

Everyone in the village where Lizzie lives thinks that she's a dreamer. So it's no wonder that they don't believe her when she says she's seen a witch. But Lizzie doesn't care, because she knows it's true and having a witch for a friend makes life much more exciting.
