Review quote

A funny delight, which is so much more than just a gimmicky novelty The Bookseller Ingenious and so much fun Bookseller Clever flaps which open in two ways add a refreshing and witty dimension to this simple, boldly illustrated tour of the witch's kitchen. -- Julia Eccleshare The Guardian Simple but satisfying. The Daily Mail Featured/recommended Two Writing Teachers Blog Humorous contrasts, cheery colors, and smiling bats and ghosts make this book a perfect fit for storytimes about homes, rhymes, or surprises. School Library Journal Silly humor will elicit many giggles while reinforcing the learning of directional concepts of left and right and up and down. Pictures pop in bright, saturated colors defined by thick black line. In addition, young readers will find Halloween images-snakes, bats, spiders, frogs, witch's brooms, ghosts, moons and stars-in the patterns used to create many of the illustrations. Kirkus Reviews All readers will love way they can change the pictures in this clever picture book Lovereading
