Snake, Rattle, and Mole by AC Michael

Imagine a witch and a rattlesnake making music together and panhandling.  Think they would sound pretty?  No one else did either...

Publishing Push and the author let me read an ebook of this story.  It has been published, so you can grab a copy on Amazon.

The witch is sure it's the snake's fault so she tries to do magic on him.  All it does is make him bigger and take away his rattle.  He's not happy with that!  She just leaves him and goes away.

While he's crying and wondering what to do, he feels the earth move and he meets a mole.  He sneaks down into the mole's den and then talks about his problem.  The mole says he has an idea how to get his rattles back.

This witch is pretty pathetic.  She's trying to do a spell on a mouse and all it does is change its colors.  The only way she'll agree to try to reverse the spell is by a trick the mole and snake play on her.

I liked the trick and I liked the lesson the witch learned.  The illustrations are simple and look like they could have been done a young artist.  I think you could say these characters qualified as curious.
