By A Customer on 25 Nov. 2001
Format: Library Binding
Like all the Eyewitness books this is packed with photos and facts about the topic. It isnt about specific spells, it is about providing a rich visual overview of magic makers around the world in fact and fiction. A good series of books.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very dull and plain. It has no spells, charms, and true wicca. It just has pictures of stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is NOT a Wicca textbook 2 Jan. 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is NOT SUPPOSED to have, you know, spells and that kind of stuff. It is explaining a brief history of WitchCraft, not just New Age and Wicca. But it is a great explanation to non-Pagans and people just interested in magic(k)-making throughout the ages. OK? Besides all the Eyewitness books have excellent pictures, and good text. If you want to learn Wicca like me, read _Exploring Wicca_ or _Drawing Down the Moon_. If you are merely curious about magic(k)-making, READ THIS BOOK!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for young people 9 Mar. 2001
By Annette Hrisko-Allen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was meant to serve as part picture book, part mini-packet of magical trivia. It was not marketed as an actual religious text of any stripe.
I think that this book can be used to open up discussion between open-minded parents and their kids. If a young person sees something in the book and asks, "what's this?", parents then have the opportunity to actually TALK to their kid(s) about something ancient and potentially meaningful.
Sure, there are better books on the history and practice of magic and witchcraft; but this book is meant to spark an interest, not encompass an entire cirriculum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dispells myths & presents an enlightening history of witches 22 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is fascinating! The pages are repleat with exquisite photographs of actual artifacts. Covers a diverse sampling of witchcraft from around the world and through time. Blatantly honest and frighteningly factual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for a little one. 21 Sept. 2013
By B. Rackley - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was purchased as a gift for the neighbors child. The book is a good introduction in the subject of wizards and magic.
Informative for a mind that asks questions and for a parent that wants their child to not grow up with a Hollywood image of witches and wizards.'

I was even interested in a few of the explanations given.

The purchase was from a third party, but looked new and unread. A good purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars Immersive Illustrations 23 Aug. 2016
By Mark - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The illustrations bring the subject matter to life for a young reader. I should know, I checked this and other Eyewitness books out repeatedly from the library in grade school. Eventually, I moved on to more detailed non-fiction, but these books instilled a love of learning that has thus far continued.
