Only a Witch Can Flyby Alison McGhee, Taeeun Yoo
A young girl wants to fly like a witch on a broom, and one special night, through enormous effort and with the help of her brother, her black cat, and an owl, she fulfills her dream.
The New York Times
The effortless quiet of McGhee's words is beautifully matched by Yoo's pictures. …There's more than enough magic in these pages…for young readers and for their parents, who might otherwise give up on finding anything truly enchanting about Halloween.
It's an enchanting book that makes a compelling point about the perseverance needed to follow your dreams. It's not hard to imagine such a potent message resonating with young readers this Halloween.
This sophisticated picture book is rich with imagination… More personal, quiet, and transcendent than most Halloween books, this is not a call to witchcraft, but rather to following one's heart.
