Reviews

The quality of the writing is uniformly high ... and the range of themes and subjects is wide and highly imaginative. It's a perfect Halloween read but also an inspirational introduction to the wider world of fantasy writing - bridging the gap between children's and adult fiction. * Daily Mail * There's a witchy figure to suit everyone in this sparkling collection of short stories, but when you pick it up, expect the unexpected * We Love This Book * This collection contains stories about friendship, love and family, but, most importantly, they are all also about witches * Recommended Reads, Children's Books Ireland * The joy of this book is that each of the stories in it adds something new to our idea of what a witch might be... This is a varied, imaginative, and well-crafted collection ... and will appeal to all readers, not only those who already have a taste for the fantastic. * Booktrust *
