The Three Little Witches Storybook
Georgie Adams, Emily Bolam
(Orion Pub Co, Dec. 1, 2001)
Zara, Ziggy and Zoe are three little witches who live together in Magic Wood, where anything can happen. Cups and saucers wash themselves up, letters sprout wings, a calendar sings a song, the signpost changes direction, and Wizard Wink's school moves from place to place. These seven stories show the little witches' daily doings and their preparations for a Hallowe'en party with Baby Dragon, the Troll family, two little wizard boys and a horrid little witch called Melissa. Zara, Ziggy and Zoe are no more than small children living in a world of magic, and their adventures are full of humour and fun. Punctuated by catchy rhymes and speech bubbles, the stories demand to be read aloud, and with their bright, funny pictures and lively design they are hugely appealing.
