When crotchety old witch Hepzibah is given a human child to care of, she’s horrified (“not a wart on her,” poor thing). And when after years of careful training in witchery, the child, Halloweena, asks for human playmates, Hepzibah is aghast. Nevertheless, she wants to see Halloweena happy, and as she tries to find friends for her daughter, Halloweena proves she is indeed a good witch-in-training by conjuring up a way to keep them both happy.
