Summary

Summary

Zara, Ziggy and Zoe are three little witches who live in the magic wood. Join them in their magical world, where signposts give directions out loud, calendars sing, cookbooks have minds of their own, and party inviations fly out on wings. Together with their friends Wizard Wink, Baby Dragon, and the Troll children, these funny little witches do their best to stay out of trouble. This charming storybook collection contains eight funny stories filled with magic spells, rhymes, and recipes--all beautifully illustrated by popular British artist Emily Bolam.

Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 3. Three little girl witches--Zara, Ziggy, and Zoe--live in Cauldron Cottage in Magic Wood. They have familiars: a frog named Fidget, a black cat named Jelly, and an owl called Two Hoots. They also have nonsense incantations, silly spells, and magic ink that turns a different color with every letter and makes splotches on words it doesn't like. This storybook, which can be used year round, but is especially suitable for Halloween, comprises eight short stories. The paintings burst with bright colors and good cheer: Cauldron Cottage is as round as a pumpkin; the panels are busy with comic details; and the requisite orange and black is mixed with deep pastels. Children will enjoy both the capsule adventures and the engaging art, which starts casting its spell on the cover, showcasing the three witches, their familiars, and a trio of tiny spiders. Delightful Halloween fun. --Connie Fletcher


Publisher's Weekly Review

Adams (A Year Full of Stories) tracks a trio of broom-riding roommates as they throw a Halloween bash. They write invitations with a pen that "[makes] splotches on words it didn't like"-including one bratty guest's name-and the envelopes fly to the recipients; they also attend a runaway school ("I wonder where we'll find it today?" says one witch). The narrative may be more utilitarian than bewitching, but Bolam's (Murphy Meets the Treadmill) frisky ink-and-watercolor spot cartoons and panels keep the story zipping along until the final blow-out, which lives up to its promise of "tricks, treats, and monster marshmallows!"

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-A calendar flips its pages as the weeks go by, letters sprout wings and fly to their destinations, and a school building gets up and changes its location at whim. These are just a few of the "special effects" in these eight short stories. Zara, Ziggy, and Zoe live together in Magic Wood with their pets-a frog, a cat, and an owl. In the first story, the three young witches decide to give a Halloween party so they send invitations to their classmates, including mean Melissa. The ensuing adventures follow the girls as they ready their home for the festivities and reveal their daily activities, until the last story, "Party Night." Animals, books, and furniture can talk and the correct magic words will make a room clean itself. Interspersed throughout the stories are the clever RSVP replies, which take on various formats and arrive in unexpected ways. Watercolor pictures splash the pages with bright images of the girls and their friends, who include wizards, trolls, and a dragon. The lively action and varied typefaces are visually stimulating and will hold the interest of new readers.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
