She decides to use her magic to get rid of the children ...This engaging story written by Maire Buonocore and beautifully illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault will capture your child's imagination! It has been sensitively rewritten to enable your child to read it with confidence whilst capturing the magic of the original tale. There are useful tips for parents and an engaging story map inside the book to help you and your child retell the story together.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
