Another of Witch’s potions has gone horribly wrong, and Witch’s hair is now an awful fairy blue. Blue is meant for happy and good things, instead of a color that resembles things like ash, boogers, or blood. Too bad the only thing that Witch can do to make everything right again is to snatch a naughty child. When she spies a little boy playing with dolls in the park, she knows she has found the right child. Is he really the naughty boy that has stolen his sister’s dolls, or is he going to teach her a lesson in perceptions?
An unpredictable turn takes this book from another bad behavior witch to a truly delightful life lesson. Witchy Things will appeal to younger readers and will make them fall over in fits of giggles because of the witch’s silly antics and her angry exclamation: “stinking skunk farts!” Mariasole Brusa knows how to write to her exact audience, keeping a child’s attention throughout the entire book. Marta Sevilla’s simple, colorful illustrations are fun and engaging lending just the right amount of over-exaggeration needed for the story.
