A VERY DELIGHTFUL STORY BOOK!
on 26 November 2012
This was a lovely book to read.
This is the story of `The Little Witch' - she's 127 years old (which is quite young for a Witch we are told!) but she's got problems; she's been told by the Witch Sisterhood that she's a bad Witch and must be much better if she's to join the Coven and midnight celebrations. The problem is; she thinks being a bad Witch is doing bad spells and stuff, and so you guessed it; she starts to be a `good' Witch thinking she's much better!
There are several adventures broken up into sections telling of various delightful and enchanting stories of how she helps people - all very different and interesting.
This is a really lovely book with lots of pictures/illustrations in the style of simple drawings. They're very clear and detailed, and I love the picture on page 59 which is my favourite - I did not think a simple drawing could be so vibrant! In many ways, this book is quite unique.
I love story-book Witches, and although this goes against type, (I normally prefer the traditional `wicked' story-book type Witch) this role-reversal did not diminish my enjoyment of the novel.
A very good read with delightful cover artwork.
