Hagatha Substitutes

By Biruta Amatrice

Hagatha takes on the challenging job of spending the day with frisky second-graders.  Both children and the teacher of the day learn some new things.

She had to do this in a hurry! ZING! Hagatha’s straight red hair flew up into a neat bun at the top of her head. ZAP! Her orange and green stockings became a long-sleeved blouse. Poof! The ragged black cape became a neatly-fitting suit. Her buckled shoes stayed the same, but the pointed hat became a fashionable tote. Hagatha had shape-shifting talents.
