A quirky, entertaining back-to-school treat that will help little ones get over those first day jitters . . . with a little magic!
Wanda is a friendly young witch who is off to her first day at school. But when she arrives, she notices that something isn't quite right. All her classmates have wands instead of broomsticks. And everyone has wings--except for Wanda. Soon Wanda realizes that there's been a mistake: She has ended up in a school for fairies! What's a witch to do?
But with the help of a kind teacher and a few surprise magic tricks, Wanda is soon making friends. By the end of the day, Wanda has learned an important lesson: Even if we don't always fit in right away, there are always friends to be found!

This is Mark Sperring's second picture book for The Chicken House. He's a bookseller in Bristol. Liz and Kate Pope are identical twins who have just left art college. This is their spectacular debut picture book.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–Wanda, a young witch, is nervous about her first day of school. When she enters her classroom, she notices that all of the other girls have wands and are wearing colorful dresses; Wanda has a broomstick and is wearing black. She soon realizes that she is the only witch in a school of fairies. She asks her teacher about it, and Miss Dewdrop assures her that all youngsters feel a bit uncomfortable on their first day. Wanda enjoys herself even though her projects turn out differently from those of the other children. After seeing some students from another school fly by the window (all witches with one lone fairy), Wanda again meekly questions her teacher and Miss Dewdrop reassures her that as long as she had fun, she is definitely in the right place. Readers will be pleasantly surprised when they discover that Wanda looks forward to returning the next day. The candy-colored illustrations are full of fairyland details: shiny stars, glittering fairy dust, and delicate flowers. With her frizzy hair and black dress, Wanda stands out among her neatly coifed, pastel-clad classmates. Although this book will appeal to fans of fairies and princesses, parents wishing to lessen first-day-of-school jitters may want to look elsewhere.–Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN
