Asking for a friend here, who has been coming up short in her own searches. Here's her description:
When I was somewhere between 8-12, I read a book about a boy who is in elementary or middle school. The school is doing a fundraiser and he raffles off yard work. Unfortunately for him, the old lady hermit (that everyone thinks is a witch) wins the bid. He goes to her house to do the yard work and she gives him some snacks. I think they were brownies? These "special brownies" (No-I'm not making this up...) turn him into whatever he thinks of when he eats them. (Turns out, she *is* a witch, but is actually pretty cool.) Somewhere in the story, he turns into a rat, I believe. That's all I got. Anybody know what book I'm talking about?
