Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Wendy the witch has two pretty mean older sisters, Polly and Wog. They wouldn't let her ride with them, claiming that she didn't have a proper broomstick and they wouldn't let her help cast spells. Little Wendy tries her best to master these skills and succeeds quite well after she makes a friend on Halloween night. His belief in her abilities lets her cast a few spells that help convince her sisters that she is also a formidable witch. Jane Manning's green witches are more amusing than scary. Part of the "An I Can Read Chapter Book" series. 1999 (orig.
Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Wendy, a young witch, is told by her older sisters that she can't cackle well or cast strong spells. When she loses her broomstick, they refuse to take her along on Halloween night. Later, when a trick-or-treater knocks on her door, he convinces her to join him. Roger and his mother give Wendy their old kitchen broomstick and she realizes that she does have witch magic, after all. She uses her newfound abilities to take revenge on two boys who exclude Roger from their Halloween fun, scaring them so badly that they run away crying. She also casts spells on her sisters so they fall out of the sky and have to walk home. Children may deduce from this story that it's okay to take revenge on unsuspecting people. Though Wendy does eventually restore her sisters' powers, she never apologizes to them. The illustrations reflect the action of the story but don't enhance it. A secondary purchase at best.-Laura Santoro, Coventry Library, Cleveland Heights, OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Great Book!

    Loved this book. I read it to my class when we were discussing different types of heroes and misconceptions of what a hero should look and act like.
