I just love this little book! I remember borrowing it from our local library when I was in 1st grade (1970) and feeling so grown up because it was a book recommended for at least third graders! What I loved about it then and what I still love about it is the fantasy world that two young girls (characters in the book) create about a witch family. They also create adventures for the little witch girl with whom I identified so much. I can also remember Malachai the magic bumblebee and the little poem the girls created to summon him when in trouble. Overall, this is a delightlful little book but it is definitely written for young girls. So, if you are an adult seeking a good book to sink your teeth into, I would not recommend this book; I would recommend the Harry Potter series instead. However, if you are an adult looking for an adventurous fantasy story for your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade daughter or niece--I would definitely recommend this book!
