Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The charmingly old-fashioned illustrations have both detail and whimsy, and children will especially enjoy the foldout flaps."- School and Library Journal

"The cozy, cluttered details on every floor lend the book warmth and charm." Publishers Weekly reviews The Curious Little Witch

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—After waking up in the evening and starting her routine, Little Witch finds a pink suitcase on the front porch of her tree house and decides to magic it open. Her spell ends up opening everything but the pink suitcase. Little Witch decides to seek out some help from the various witches in her neighborhood, including the Witch Doctor and the Traveling Witch. They tell her that the suitcase is for big witches, and that she will be able to open it when she's "big and clever enough." Little Witch is determined to figure it out, and she is ultimately successful, with the contents of the case sending her to Witch School. The charmingly old-fashioned illustrations have both detail and whimsy, and children will especially enjoy the foldout flaps.—Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York City
Kirkus Reviews
A little pink suitcase spells mischief for an adventurous young witch. Lizzy lives in a cozy tree house with her devoted striped cat. She's just about ready for bed when a "CLUNK! PLUNK!" outside piques her curiosity. In front of her door she finds a shiny pink suitcase. She brings it in and tries to open it with a nifty spell. Instead, everything in her house--oven door, cabinets, cake tin--flies open; the suitcase remains firmly locked. Lizzy sets out on her broom to the Witch Hospital to unravel this mystery. She shows the suitcase to the Witch Doctor, but when she repeats her spell, everything in the hospital room goes flying. (Page flaps give readers two views of the room, before and after.) A visit to the Witch Train Station yields a similar result. Lizzy flies to an open field and, with her cat, thinks and thinks. What if she tries a spell to keep the case firmly closed? This proves to be the magic touch, leading to more flap surprises for readers and an invitation to Witch School, where Clever Lizzy can now hone her craft. Baeten's magical adventure has a bit of savvy; it's whimsical without being cloying. Fossey's attractive illustrations seem bathed in moonlight, and the flaps and a variety of page layouts add more appeal. Beguiling. (Picture book. 5-8)
