LoveReading4Kids Says

This first book in a new series about a little girl with a big imagination invites discussion of big themes (peer pressure, doing the right thing, being considerate of others) through a fun and freeing child-centred story. Writer Márie Zepf has a real knack for wry, warm-hearted humour, while illustrator, Mr Ando, delivers boldly energetic visuals readers will delight in.

Rita wants a witch - of that she is 100% sure, for a witch would never tell her to go to bed, or tidy her room. A witch would never tell her to wash up, or do her homework. But then, as Rita imagines how a witch could, for example, turn her teacher into a frog, she begins to worry that her witchy dream might have a few problems. What if the witch scared her friends away, or didn’t know what to do if Rita fell ill? “A witch could ruin everything,” Rita realises, and so she changes her mind. What she really wants is her mum - a mum who sometimes dresses up as a witch! This satisfying full-circle story with a twist is great to read aloud, with every page inviting interaction and discussion.

The series includes;

Rita wants a Witch

Rita wants a Robot 

Rita wants a Ninja

Rita wants a Fairy Godmother
