318K: The Magic Tent (Solved!)

I read this book when I was young in the 80s. It was about a brother and sister (I think) who were caught in a rainstorm and happened upon a sagging, scary looking tent. They went inside and magically it was a bright, exciting room with some kind of delicious food (ice cream? cotton candy?) and I think a pinball machine? I feel like there was a witch involved, who turned out to be a good witch, but maybe I’m making that up.

  1. This is one of the witch books by Norman Bridwell! It’s THE WITCH’S VACATION. Later issues of it have slightly different and colorized illustrations.
