This is the story of Maggie Sparks, a feisty little witch who is not thrilled with the arrival of a new baby brother. Her new little brother Arthur seems to be the centre of her parents’ world, and in her eyes she feels unloved. With the help of her pet chameleon Bat, and an understanding grandfather, she tries to deal with the issue in her own way.

This is a lovely little story, dealing with the common issue of jealousy when a new baby arrives in a family. There are many picture books dealing with this issue, but it is unusual and refreshing to have a ‘story’ book written with a positive message for all those older siblings!

It is written with both humour and understanding. Maggie’s references to her distaste for her mother ‘swapping a big tummy for a baby,’ to how she is far happier when the new baby is in its cage (cot.)

Bat the chameleon is a loyal pet and manages to change colour not to match its surroundings but to match her moods.

The whole family are witches, with the ability to cast magic spells, but none of them seem very able and various mishaps ensue as a result. Happily, all is resolved and peace reigns.

The book moves at a good pace for young children, with short, well-paced sentences and lots of DINGS, POPS and YUMS, combined with expressive illustrations by Esther Hernando to encourage the child to read this book enthusiastically and for general enjoyment.
