Gr 2-4—Mo is a tiny witch, only seven centimeters tall. Her problem is not being small, but rather that she is afraid of children. She has nightmares of being stomped on by them. Her full-grown witch friends, Gordinflona Ana Cerdana (Ana Cerdana the fatso) and Cacatúa Desdentada (toothless cockatoo) remind her that she's the one who should be doing the scaring. However, Mo's best friend, a girl named Violeta, is trying to teach her not to be afraid. When she hides the little witch in her backpack and carries her to school, Mo overhears one of the girl's schoolmates talking about her nightmares about witches. Mo suddenly realizes how silly she is to be afraid, and the whole class chimes in on a singsong verse made up by Mo. This is an imaginative story about conquering one's fears, but it has a rather anticlimactic ending. Pérez's bright and colorful illustrations help the story along.—Angélica Sauceda, Anaheim Public Library, CA
