Ooh, this sounds like fun. It would probably be more fun if I knew
anything about Robert Jordan...

(Speaking of witches in fiction, and this is still not related to DWJ, I
was in the children's room at the library yesterday and rediscovered the
Dorrie books by Patricia Coombs. Oh, they're adorable. Sort of older
picture books, where there's an actual story but the pictures are very
important, and she's got a cat named Gink and her socks never match and
there's one where her mother, Big Witch, is turned into a teacup. I love
the children's room. :^)

The best way to keep children at home is to make the home
atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of their tires.
