The Witchling’s Wish

Lu Fraser, illustrated by Sarah Massini

This rhyming picture book conjures a world of friendly magic, with blue owls, earwaxy lizards and a wobbly knobbly broom.

A thoughtful witchling is lonely in her inky bat cave home. The story deals with fear and bravery, kindness and generosity in a charming and direct way.  The illustrations by Sarah Massini have a balance of detail and movement that perfectly reflects the story of the little witch’s journey to find a friend.

A great book for children learning about being brave and making new friends.
