Zara, Ziggy and Zoe are three little witches who live together in Magic Wood, where anything can happen. Cups and saucers wash themselves up, letters sprout wings, a calendar sings a song, the signpost changes direction, and Wizard Wink's school moves from place to place. These seven stories show the little witches' daily doings and their preparations for a Hallowe'en party with Baby Dragon, the Troll family, two little wizard boys and a horrid little witch called Melissa. Punctuated by catchy rhymes and speech bubbles, the stories demand to be read aloud, and with their bright, funny pictures and lively design they are hugely appealing.

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A calendar flips its pages as the weeks go by, letters sprout wings and fly to their destinations, and a school building gets up and changes its location at whim. These are just a few of the "special effects" in these eight short stories. Zara, Ziggy, and Zoe live together in Magic Wood with their pets-a frog, a cat, and an owl. In the first story, the three young witches decide to give a Halloween party so they send invitations to their classmates, including mean Melissa. The ensuing adventures follow the girls as they ready their home for the festivities and reveal their daily activities, until the last story, "Party Night." Animals, books, and furniture can talk and the correct magic words will make a room clean itself. Interspersed throughout the stories are the clever RSVP replies, which take on various formats and arrive in unexpected ways. Watercolor pictures splash the pages with bright images of the girls and their friends, who include wizards, trolls, and a dragon. The lively action and varied typefaces are visually stimulating and will hold the interest of new readers.
