This book is absolutely fantastic - one of the best picture books I have ever come across. It's very funny, it's beautifully presented and you'll be begging your children to read it just one more time. The witch's three children are out and about in the park and that means trouble. They have limited magic up their sleeves - enough to change a little girl into a frog and the ice-cream lady into a princess etc. but once they've transformed the local wildlife they can't change anything back to its original form. Uh-oh. But they do have just one fantastic trick up their sleeves - one that will make every parent with preschool children laugh. The story is cracking and the illustrations are every bit as good. They're fresh and funky, & keep your eyes open for the tiny mouse, frog, and snail etc. For any child age 3 plus: BUY!

I bought this and 'The Princess Who had no Kingdom' for my daughter's 6th birthday. 'The Witch's Children' is a very, very funny book with wonderful illustrations. We laugh every time we read it, and we're now going to purchase the other 'Witch's Children' books in the series. 'The Princess Who Had no Kingdom' - another Jones book is utterly breathtaking. It's a wonderful message for a little girl with beautiful detailed illustrations. If you're looking for a great book for a little girl - 'The Princess Who Had no Kingdom' is the one.

This is a great read. We got the Withces children visit the Queen from the library and loved it so I decided to get my son (3 years and 3 months old) this too. I am so glad I did. Its a fantastic read, and he loves to end the sentances with 'and that means 'TROUBLE'

The witches children have just enough magical skills to cause chaos, but when asked to put things right they 'cant- havent learned how to do THAT yet'

I love this one so much my son now gets offered. 'OK, which 2 stories apart from The Witches Children do you want tonight?' Luckily he likes it too :-)

My almost 3 year old Son loves this book and asks for it again before I've read the last page. He loves the transformations and the way the animals say "oh here comes trouble!" He also loves The Terrible Plop, The Gruffalo and The Beasties.
