3+. Mums can do magic, everyone knows that but what if the magic is a witch’s magic? When Jimmy sees a witch fly past at night with his own cat on the end of her broomstick he’s terrified of what he may have discovered. Wouldn’t you be? How can he find out the truth? Told in a jaunty text and with exuberant pictures to match, Jimmy’s detective work is brilliant and funny but doesn’t come up with any answers…

Lovereading comment:

A wonderfully colourful picture book for kids who think that witches don’t exist anymore or even for those who do. It will enchant and bewitch all who read it but best of all it will tell you how to spot a witch! May be even... your mum!!!! At the end of the book you’ll get a wonderful surprise with a whole sheet of spook-tacular stickers to fix where you fancy.

Synopsis

The Everyday Witch by Liz Martinez, Mark Beech

One night a little boy peeps through his curtains and is horrified to see his mother fly past - on a broomstick (with Tiddles, his cat). Clearly there must be some mistake, but Jimmy doesn't want to take any chances. After consulting a book on how to identify witches, he starts looking for other telltale signs. But just as he begins to feel reassured that his mother is 'normal', Jimmy discovers the ultimate clue right under his nose: stripy stockings on the washing line. This is a fantastically warm, witty rhyming text that ever-so-gently reminds us to challenge stereotypes (even if they do steal your cat).
