Overview

Gloria is the worst student ever to attend Madame Pestilence's Academy. Not only does she muddle her magic spells and flunk broom drill, she gets in trouble for smiling too much! When Gloria hears about a wonderful holiday called Christmas, she decides she wants to be a Christmas witch, working good spells for peace and fun. It's no easy task-but Gloria is no ordinary witch!

"Deliciously detailed, semi-spooky art spices... a sci-fi spin, an old adage or two, and jiggers of ghoulishness and glee." -Publishers Weekly

"Illustrated with all of Kellogg's usual zest and energy and filled with diverting detail." -The Horn Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The Little Christmas Witch, Gloria helps to defy evil, to bring peace among two warring factions, and to defeat the Wicked Witch, Madame Pestilence. The story is told on a level that most young children will understand although they will not get all of the puns. The illustrations are crammed with elves, animals, people, witches and goblins, which should give kids plenty to look at. It is a positive message and worthy of repeated readings.
