The Wicked Enchantment

by Margot Benary-Isbert

From the book Jacket: Life in the old cathedral town of Vogelsang had gone on peacefully for many years, and life for Anemone and her father had always been a happy one. But strange and disturbing things began to happen. One of the cathedral statues of a foolish virgin disappeared, and also the figure of the gargoyle that spouted above it. The mayor dismissed three of the town's most respected councilors, blaming them for the disappearance. And Anemone, with her dog Winnie, ran away from home-driven to it by the mean housekeeper and her horrid son who had made life miserable for Anemone ever since Father befriended them and took them in. Even Aunt Gundula, a remarkable person who had been Anemone's mother's dearest friend and with whom Anemone took refuge, couldn't-at first- understand why things in the town were at such sixes and sevens. It was unheard of that the songbirds which had always been welcomed back by the townspeople each spring were now being caught in nets by the Mayor and his friends, and that the Mayor had actually forbidden the sale of Easter eggs. This #12; was more than Gundula, who each year painted the most beautiful eggs for miles around, could stand. Slowly, as Easter and the night of the full moon drew near, Gundula, with the help of her cat, her pet mouse, her parrot-and of course Anemone-discovered what was at the root of all the trouble.
