A story about making friends weaves its magic
A lonely little witch casts a spell to magic up a friend. The final ingredient is furriness from a one-eyed teddy, and her crystal ball tells her there’s one at 14 Acorn Drive. Though she’s nervous about facing up to the teddy, off the Witchling sets. But to her surprise, there’s nothing scary about the teddy, or his little girl, just kindness. Could the spell have made her wish come true after all? Lu Fraser’s story is absolutely charming and Sarah Massini’s expressive illustrations are full of tenderness and subtlety. A dreamy story that perfectly describes something all children understand, the magic of friendship.
A magical, beautifully illustrated picture book about what it means to be a friend.
Little Witchling lives alone in her mountain top and more than anything else, she wishes for a friend. So, when her spell-book tells her that the secret ingredient is the fur from a little girl's favourite teddy, she knows what she must do. But the teddy belongs to Lilly, who can't bear to part with him. Will Little Witchling give up her dream of a real friend? Or just maybe, is there a way for her and Lilly to make the wish come true, together?
With a heartwarming rhyming text and breathtaking illustrations from Sarah Massini, this magical friendship story is perfect for little witches everywhere!
