In the novel, Kit tells her family about Hannah. Outraged they tell Kit she is not allowed to see Hannah. "Why, Aunt Rachel, you of all people! You can 't believe she 's a witch?” ( Speare 99). Kit still sees Hannah and they form a deeper bond.
Worse yet, Kit befriends Hannah, who is also thought to be a witch and is given blame for the plague that sweeps town, killing three children. Hannah’s house is then burned down by the townsfolk in hope to stop the plague, and Kit suggests her to run off with her. They then come across The Dolphin
While they may have the same plot they have many smaller details that are different. In the book Hannah opens the door for Elijah to a field instead of a hall with multiple doors. In the movie Hannah just has cousins but no siblings, in the book Hannah only has a brother Aaron. Once Hannah has been transported to 1941 she meets Rivka who in the book is a friend but in the movie is her cousin. Soon after Hannah gets there she has to get ready for Schumel’s wedding, but once they get to the ceremony in the book they are taken away quickly where in the movie they get married and then are taken away.
Aaron contributed to the story by adding a side of Hannah that suggests that she likes to tell stories. This is shown in the beginning when Hannah’s dad wants Hannah to tell Aaron a story to calm him down. In the movie this isn’t shown. Since this isn’t shown there is no real reason Hannah starts to tell stories at the camp. Another very obvious difference from the book to the movies was that in the book Hannah lived with Gitl, but in the movie Hannah lives with Rivka.
But in the film when Hannah wakes up in Rivka’s village, Rivka says, “I’m your cousin Rivka.” Hannah’s sacrifice in the movie had a family obligation attached to it, unlike the selfless one Yolen includes in her novel. Additionally, Rivka and Hannah’s relationship in the film considerably alters the course of their life in the camp. Because Rivka is her cousin, she was not there to give Hannah the rules to live by in the camp. In the novel when Hannah and Rivka meet, Rivka tells her to, “Never stand next to someone with a G in her number. She is a Greek— and Greeks do not speak Yiddish and do not understand German.

At the bottom of one of them, she had remembered, was a little hornbook.
