Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A charming comedy about sibling jealousy, it takes a six-year-old's belief in magic and in passionate feelings equally seriously."  —Times on Witch Baby and Me

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Three witches from Ben Screeeiiighe, a wildly remote area of Scotland, are searching for a baby. Their plan, at first, is to cast a spell on an infant, allow the human parents to raise her, then take over her witchy education when she becomes older. Humans cannot see most of their spells, or so they predict. But the witches do not foresee that Baby Daisy MacRae's sister was born under a blue moon; she can see their magic, and knows that her sister is a witch even if no one believes her. And so begins this quirky series about a family who leaves the city for the Scottish highlands where they plan to carry on quiet, normal lives. Daisy finds a ghost dog, appropriately called WayWoof (because she cannot say Werewolf) that only she and Lily can see at first, but everyone smells. Gliori imaginatively dreams up spells that a toddler witch can perform, leaving hilarious consequences for her big sister to explain or fix. In After Dark, Lily and her friend Vivaldi take Daisy out for Halloween only to divert their attention from trick-or-treating to searching for lost WayWoof. Readers will laugh at Lily's imagination and her attempts to keep people from finding out that her sister is really a spell-casting witch-in-training. Entertaining line drawings complement the texts. Fun choices for readers who like silly fantasies.—Delia Carruthers, Roxbury Public Library, Succasunna, NJ
