I Want to be a Witch by Ian Cunliffe

There are lots of things about being a witch that don't sound so good. Like having yucky green hair or cooking up smelly spells. Find out what happens when one little girl decides to make up her own witchy rules in this entertaining picture book by Ian Cunliffe.


I enjoyed this picture book and won't hesitate to recommend it to people who want a little bit of witchy fun in their lives. After all, you never know what you might grow up to be... Wondrous Reads Great fun! Parents in Touch It's a lovely book, gentle, funny and easy to read. It's a joy to read too as the imagery is so good It has a lovely rythmn with innocence and great charm. Work it Mama I think it's a great book for the run up to Halloween, or if you've just got a pre-schooler who's into witches, wizards and magic. Bubba Blue and Me
