One last witchy thing before you haul your jack o’lanterns off the porch: The Wicked Witch of the West!

Have you ever checked out scanimation books? (I first wrote about them here.) I don’t understand how they work — there are no batteries or microchips and they are completely low-tech — but it really looks like the images are moving across the page. I swear! They are hard to resist for kids or grownups and fun to keep on the coffee table.

The latest one is all about the Wizard of Oz. A great gift to keep in mind for any Dorothy fans.
