It’s time to go back to school in this adorable sequel to The Picky Little Witch!
Mama Witch takes the Picky Little Witch to Witches R’ Us for some “Back to Ghoul” supplies, only to find out that they don’t agree on anything at all. The cape that Mama Witch picks out is dark as night, the pointy shoes have a hundred buttons, and the splintery pine broom is perfect for helping little witches grow up to be mean and scary. But the Picky Little Witch would much prefer glitter, sequins, and feathered hats to Mama Witch’s sensible but boring suggestions. Is there anything they can agree on?
This sweet and punny tale of compromise and independence shows that even very different people can love each other. Spunky illustrations by Peter Welling bring this spirited back-to-school story to life.
