Book Description

"Verity and Dulcie are only little girls, put-upon by parents and big sisters. But after trick-or-treating a mysterious shop, they discover that they are now little witches...
Striking a nice balance between creepy happenings and gentle humour, the adventures of the Little Witches - involving a boy-ghost, a cat-boy, and a famous playwright - will appeal to fans of Diana Wynne Jones, Susan Cooper and Jill Murphy."
- Imogen Russell Williams

"I wish I'd read this back when I was a little witch-wannabee, trying to befriend every black cat I saw.
The very practical and good-natured little witches definitely deserve more adventures."
- Frances Hardinge

The Little Witches stories are magical adventures intended for the 8-12 age-group but with appeal for readers of any age.

In the first story, Little Witches and the Trick-or-Treat-Trick, the heroines meet each other for the first time on Halloween. Dulcie's au pair is a fashion student who has dressed her up as a modern witch - "occult casual" she calls it. Verity has lost the battle with her sisters for first choice from the dressing up box and ended up with pirate boots and a witches hat and broom. While out trick-or-treating they accidentally annoy a mysterious old woman who casts a spell on them Dulcie and Verity gain magic powers for real. In Little Witches and the Wandering Shop they work together to find a way to reverse the spell.

There are three more Little Witches stories in this collection. Little Witches and the Family Ghost is a ghost story which takes place in Dulcie's grandfather's stately home. Little Witches and the Cat Burglar is a crime story in which they meet a strange black cat. Little Witches Back in Time is a time-travel adventure in which they meet Shakespeare.

Philip Pullman described it as having “considerable narrative authority and a real flair for atmosphere”. Rhiannon has published eleven further novels, a non-fiction book about the supernatural and co-edited an anti-war anthology of poetry and prose: Lines in the Sand. Her psychological horror novel Bad Blood, was nominated for six awards: including the Guardian Prize and the BookTrust Prize. Her most recent novel, Ghost of a Chance, was published in February 2011.

Clarke award in 2009 and 2010 on a panel that included authors Francis Spufford and Jon Courtenay Grimwood, judging the best British science fiction titles of the year. She has also spoken on panel discussions on subjects from ranging from Marxism in science fiction to place and space in children's fiction at various academic and literary conferences. She has written reviews for Armadillo, Strange Horizons and other publications. Her favourite authors include Ursula LeGuin, Margaret Mahy and Octavia Butler. Her own novels explore themes of identity, change and becoming. Rhiannon lives and works in Oxford, United Kingdom. Her ambition is to be the first writer-in-residence on the Moon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting book and witches 24 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a lovely book for little girls who will,I am sure, be heading straight for their mothers' wardrobes to see what they might 'borrow' in order to become witches too. The stories are told in such a way that the reader is swept along at a fair pace but with plenty of time to explore new words. The descriptions of the girls and their ghost are so good that they can virtually be seen. I hope there will be more stories in another book or books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, smart and entertaining 31 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This collection of five stories about Dulcie and Verity and their witchy adventures is delightfully sparky from the start. The writing is reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones's stories for younger readers, and the girls' characters and those of their family and associates spring off the page. Dialogue and incident are brisk and snappy, without sacrificing atmosphere. A great read if you're an aspirant little witch yourself, or if you have one in your life!

My 8 year old absolutely loved the first of these stories read as a bed-time story, and couldn't wait for the next instalment so I let her read on herself....
These Little Witches stories are self contained but are best read in order. The stories are modern-day and full of little details that make them feel firmly set in the real world, but with a magical twist that makes you feel ooh, this really COULD happen (especially around Hallow'een!). Each story advances the plot as you get to know the girls and they find out more about how their magic works.
There are clearly more stories to come, hopefully soon, as we both want to know what happens next! Recommended for confident readers from 8-10.

These Little Witches stories are self contained but are best read in order.
