Mrs Jolly was the school caretaker. She had a short nose and two, comfy round chins and curly brown hair, going grey.
Mrs Jolly had a ginger cat. Mrs Jolly was friendly, nice and cuddly.
But there was something the headmistress didn’t know. Or the other teachers. Or the children.
In the Autumn term when Mrs Jolly swept the playground clear of leaves with a broomstick, even then, nobody guessed that she was… a witch!
At the end of school each day when everyone had gone home, Mrs Jolly, the caretaker became Mrs Jolly, the witch.
This was the time when she used her magic powers, though she looked just the same. Friendly and cuddly.
