The wicked witch of the west wants her sister’s ruby slippers, which apparently have magical powers. However, Glinda has magically put the shoes on Dorothy’s feet.

In the novel, Witch and Wizard: The Kiss, there’s a very savvy protagonist who has breath-taking magical abilities, and a wild persona. The protagonist, Witsy Allgood, is a seventeen-year old girl who is of tall height and stunning red hair. Witsy is a witch with vast powers (she is gifted with the abilities of shapeshifting, pyrokinesis, and electrokinesis), and she seems to know how to control her powers very well. In earlier stages of her life, she bursts into flames, turns Byron Swain into a lion and a weasel, turns herself into a mouse, and is able to freeze people and animals around her. Unfortunately, despite her gifted talents, she doesn’t exactly think openly before using them.

The first ingredient “Toad, that under cold stone Days and nights has thirty-one Swelter’d venom sleeping has got.” is a toad that has been sweating poison thirty-one days under a cold stone.
