Overview

Frog's guts and lizard's eyes,

to every color I say good-bye!


Greta's at it again.

This time, she casts a spell she knows Alice will hate--one that makes all color in the world disappear! Now Alice may be nice, but a witch has to do what a witch has to do. So Alice casts a spell of her own to teach Greta a lesson. Soon the spells start flying, and before they know it, Alice and Greta have made a color magic mess--every color in the world gets mixed up!

Can Alice and Greta work together to fix this color confusion?

Steve Simmons and Cyd Moore make magic again with another Alice and Greta adventure--a delightful story with an important message about the beauty and importance of differences.

After Greta, a naughty witch, causes trouble by casting a spell that drains all color from the world, she must team up with Alice, a kind witch, to set things right.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The two witches mix things up in Alice and Greta's Color Magic by Steven J. Simmons, illus. by Cyd Moore. In an attempt to get back at Alice, Greta casts a spell that drains the world of color including her favorite green. Mayhem ensues until Alice and Greta decide to work together to set things right. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
"In an attempt to get back at Alice, Greta casts a spell that drains the world of color, including her favorite green. Mayhem ensues until the duo decides to work together to set things right," noted PW of this continuation of the two witches' antics. Ages 5-8. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Alice and Greta are two young witches who have entirely different feelings about the world. Greta likes to use her magic to cause trouble for others while Alice cares about the world and creatures in it. Alice seems to be the recipient of Greta's nasty spells. What happens when Greta makes just certain colors disappear from the world? Objects, animals, and people all take on a different look. Imagine cotton candy with no pink or orange juice with no orange! Greta gets so carried away that she makes every color disappear, much to the disappointment of friends and foes. Even your best friend may not be keen on having their favorite hair color disappear. Soon the young witches are involved in a large, scale color conflict and must work together to resolve the mess. This is a cute story with a bit of a moral and also, a great lesson in the magic of colors. Add this to your Halloween collection. 2001, Alfred A. Knopf, $14.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-This story continues the antics of two witches: Alice, who is always good, and Greta, a nasty prankster. Greta decides to make Alice's favorite colors disappear, and gets in over her head when she causes all of the color in the world (except for her favorite, "yucky green") to vanish. Alice is furious and realizes that Greta must be behind the mischief. Children in art classes are in tears; youngsters around the world have colorless eyes, hair, and faces; and even the trickster herself is sad and bored with the sameness of everything. Alice retaliates, the magic gets even more out of hand, and the two witches agree to work together to restore color to the world by trying a spell they learned at Witch School. Ever positive, Alice hopes that this episode will alter her nemesis's negative approach to life, but the last page shows that some people never change. The pastel colors are warm and appealing, and the cartoon drawings are amusing. The pictures of the children, animals, and natural world devoid of any color but green are quite effective, and the facial expressions of all of the characters are very telling. The narrative flows well, and the ending is believable. A great read-aloud.-Sharon McNeil, Los Angeles County Office of Education Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
