    First published in the April 1952 edition of The Saturday Evening Post this beautifully written and composed short story reveals Bradbury’s whimsical style while still remaining true to his recurring themes and settingsSet in his Green Town mythos but also with shades of October Country The April Witch introduces us to Cecy who is from a magical family and wants to be loved Born with the ability to travel on the wind and inhabit the bodies of other creatures including people we follow Cecy on a night ride in search of a man to loveBradbury’s work can be divided into several settings of fantasy Green Town The October Country and Mars Likewise his stories will also fall into the categories of fantasy science fiction and horror The April Witch blends elements of fantasy with a hint ever so subtly of horror and the result is this delightful short story

    “I want to be in love” she saidSweet and wistful this short but wonderful little fantasy by Ray Bradbury has a life all its own Though steeped in fantasy it touches upon the heart and its yearnings and in the end simply touches the heartIn language and descriptions as lovely as anything Bradbury ever wrote he introduces us to Cecy a seventeen year old girl in Illinois whose family is different from others They can float on the wind and inhabit anything seeing and experiencing life from the perspective of a flower petal a rock a dove or a human But Cecy must be careful because if she mixes or marries with an ordinary person her ability to travel by magic will be lostHere Bradbury casts an enchanting spell showing the reader the heart of a seventeen year old girl plain on the outside yet aching to experience love Losing her ability to travel magically and soak in the wonder of the world around her is unthinkable yet the ache to experience love that Cecy shares with all mankind is strong And then along comes Ann Leary and Tom and Cecy cannot resist“Being in this body this head was like basking in a hearth fire living in the purr of a sleeping cat stirring in warm creek waters that flowed by night to the sea”I can’t reveal but what Bradbury accomplishes in a few short pages is wonderful The story is delicate and romantic filled with gentle longing and yet feather like in its presentation A marvelous unforgettable bauble from one of the most uniue writers of all time

    Here's an odd but interesting idea take some short stories remove them from their original anthologies and re print them in individual specially designed volumes The idea seems to be to allow the story to shine its own light and not be over shadowed or out shone by the other stories in the anthologies Further I think the idea was to create physically beautiful booksThis project going by this one volume alone was a partial success; the literary merit of this story comes out clearly to me I'd read it before somewhere being a Bradbury fan through out my teens but it had not stuck in my memory the way famous works such as Zero Hour or A Sound of Thunder had It's a delicate story fragile apt to be torn apart in the slightest breeze from a passing fictional sky rocket such as The Veldt Giving it its own space works The melancholic mood of the story somehow evades falling into the Pit of Maudlin that awaits such works and instead climbs the Hill of Poignancy as we share the yearnings of a young lonely isolated witch one Spring evening The writing as should only be expected is beautiful and uniuely Bradbury's own; a delightThe possible other objective of creating a book as beautiful as the story it contains was for me at least a complete failure The illustrations do nothing for me in fact detract by being unappealing I'm not very sensitive to typefaces either so the careful choice made here is a bit wasted on me Other aspects of the design are unremarkable accept for one; the author and title printed at the top of each set of facing pages in most books are at the bottom in this one which I don't like On the other hand the page numbers are at the top which I prefer to the common placing at the bottomI was given an overdue reminder of Bradbury's mastery by this book Time to read

    A really imaginative portrayal of witches is this story I would love to read a whole book about the mythology of this world The April Witch is a story that that leaves you wondering and also speaks volumes about the problematic of breaking the socially imposed boundaries between people intermixing marrying up or down I did feel rather sorry for Ann

    Uhm If these are classics then these classics aren't as bad as they usually are; I actually LIKED The April Witch in stark contrast to Fahrenheit 451 Maybe this is only because the plot of one story appealed to me I have always been a nut for romance and if Cece doesn't give you that then I don't know what the hell is wrong with you Maybe it's because I was a third grader when I read this I don't really know I just can't get over the fact that these stories weren't half bad

    all sorts of imagery from all times in history come alive in Bradbury's lines Goodness what a ride

    Just what I was looking for in a short story and by one of my all time favorite authors

    Cecy wants to be in love but she must be careful if she falls in love with a mortal she will lose her magicShe decides to experience love through another She takes over Ann's body to eperience being in love and if he wouls only have her she would give up all her powersI'm not sure what to think of this story exactly It is a short story well written and certainly interesting However I don't think it was the best short story I ever read

    This is a Bradbury short story repurposed as the subject of a stand alone storybook Several original illustrations have been added I have read this story before so I am not uite sure that I see the value of this new format but the story and paintings are fine
