Product description


Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers’ Favorite
In Caution: Witch in Progress by Lynne North, we meet Gertie who comes from a long line of witches, the kind with a wart on the end of their crooked nose. However, Gertie’s appearance is a bit of a disappointment; her nose is straight without any signs of a wart, her skin is a normal healthy color and she was not  born with sharp pointy teeth. The residents of Vile Vale are all witches and warlocks and they were shocked to see a “normal” child in their midst.

Gertie is a pleasant, loving child with great compassion for others — including toads. When Gertie goes to a special private school for supernatural children, she meets some very odd characters: a talking grouchy umbrella named Bat, a toad named Wart, an owl with eye problems, and a monster with a tummy ache. Gertie doesn’t fit in very well with the other students but does make one friend, Bertha. Gertie has all the qualities humans could possibly want in their child: beauty, kindness, and compassion. She isn’t very good at casting spells –- which is tough when you are a witch

I absolutely love this tale. Gertie is a character with personality that jumps off the page. Readers will find they are laughing out loud at some of the antics. Caution: Witch in Progress by Lynne North is a tale about growing up. Poor Gertie faces the same situations that children face every day, the struggle to fit in. I can easily see this becoming a popular series I hope the author will expand this idea into a whole series of books, movies, and toys.

Reviewed by Jo Logan,former Editor of Prediction magazine 

Born and brought up in Vile Vale, Gertie came from a long line of witches but was always different, in looks and actions, from the rest of its inhabitants, though no  one knew why.  And later, when she went to the Academy to improve her witchy skills, she still had trouble fitting in with the other students despite her best efforts.  She did though make one very close friend there, Bertha, who was also regarded as a bit of an oddity, but for very different reasons.

Among Gertie’s childhood companions are such strange creatures as a talking umbrella, a smooth-skinned toad and a very near-sighted owl, all of whom have their part to play in her story.  A story that is always interesting, never frightening and full of humour.  Miss North’s fertile imagination has provided us with a delightful fantasy tale which will entertain and amuse children of all ages and perhaps more than a few young at heart adults too.
