Scared is Scared (8 mins, USA - 2013)

My First Spellbook (10:33, United Kingdom - 2011)
Some girls dream of being a princess… others to be a witch. When a spell book arrives into the school library this girl’s dream is realized… or is it a nightmare?!

A young girl is puzzled, even annoyed, by her Grandfather’s habit of collecting junk until she witnesses what he creates with it.
