Grimelda: the Very Messy Witch by Diana MurrayGrimelda's house may not be tidy, but it's cozy, and that's just the way she likes it. She also likes pickle pie. There's only one problem-she can't find the main ingredient in her messy house! Readers who enjoyed Norman Bridwell's classic The Witch Next Door will love this funny, charming story about the everyday life of a witch. With a repeating refrain and lively, rhyming text, Grimelda: The Very Messy Witch is perfect for reading aloud with a child at Halloween as well as all year round, or for an emerging reader to enjoy on their own. The vibrant illustrations by Crafty Chloe illustrator Heather Ross provide plenty of fun things for readers to discover on repeated reads.

Bright, cartoonlike digital illustrations emphasize Grimelda's haphazard life, and the circular ending will have readers giggling. -- Horn Book Magazine Murray packs playful comedy into her rhyming verse and Ross creates a chaotically cozy swamp dwelling for Grimelda. -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Heather Ross's artwork in CRAFTY CHLOE: DRESS-UP MESS-UP: Ross's spirited drawings, rendered in pencil and colored digitally, keep the action bouncing along. -- School Library Journal Praise for Heather Ross's artwork in HOW TO BEHAVE AT A TEA PARY: Photoshop digitally composed illustrations leave plenty of white space and feature brightly colored, energetic, and engaging scenes with action galore. -- ALA Booklist'
