Overview

Rumblewick is a highly qualified right hand cat to the most unwilling witch in the kingdom. He's contractually bound to shape her into the most well-rounded, disgustingly terrible witch she can be, but unfortunately, Haggy would much rather be a normal little girl than do things like boil frogs and frighten children. Poor Rumblewick! Haggy's antics keep him on his toes, endlessly dodging the wrath of the Hags on High.

Here's the latest problem: Haggy Aggy's made "bestest" best friends in the whole wide world with two very unwitchy girls. And they have asked her to sleep over tonight and she's said YES. That certainly isn't what a witch who WANTS to be a witch does, is it? Through humorously illustrated diary entries that are perfect for emerging readers, Rumblewick details life with Haggy, the loveable witch who just can't get with it!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Haggy Aggy would prefer to be human, much to the chagrin of her cat, Rumblewick. She would rather spend her time doing "Othersider" things, like taking ballet, going to gym class, and having sleepovers with friends. Rumblewick does his best to get her to do her witchly duties to please the High Hags and witch society. The books are a diary of his misadventures and near-misses with disaster. Haggy Aggy uses magic to help her pass as human, and the books include a few of her spells to help improve her dance and gymnastic skills. They also have a lot of full-page cartoon illustrations and spot art that will appeal to children, especially reluctant readers. There are a few difficult vocabulary words throughout the texts, but the stories are frothy and funny. Quick, lighthearted reads.—Jane Cronkhite, San Jose Public Library, CA

    On this side of the Horizon Line, Rumblewick the cat has his hands full trying to train Haggy Aggy to be a decent witch - conjuring spells and scaring children on the Other Side. But he is the unluckiest familiar, since Haggy Aggy is fascinated by all things Othersidely...so much so that it is now rumored among the familiars of the High Hags that Haggy Aggy is trying to ditch the witch way of life and become an Othersider all together. After a scolding from HA's Aunt Pondernot, HA accidentally ends up on a roof on the Other Side, and sees Otherside girls in the building doing JIM. All of that tumbling and leaping in the air seems like so much fun, she can't wait to try it. Forced to tag along (and miss practice for the Grand Steeple Chase Race), Rumblewick can only stand by helplessly while HA befriends two Other Side girls - Zinnia and Tulip. The girls invite Haggy Aggy to sleep over at Tulip's house, and she is absolutely thrilled...to the horror of Rumblewick. While Haggy Aggy is at the sleepover, Rumblewick discovers that the High Hags have a reward out for anyone who can catch HA in the act of being Othersidely. Yikes and triple yikes! Poor Rumblewick has to scramble to find a way to stop HA, or they'll both be in a ton of trouble. Full of delightful names and "this sidely" phrases, Rumblewick's diary made me giggle throughout, and is sure to do the same for any younger reluctant readers. I'll definitely be looking for more.
