THE SWEETEST WITCH AROUND is a fun twist on the humans-afraid-of witches theme, flipping it in a way that will amuse young kids. They'll giggle when the brave witch says, "Candy -- yuck"; when Kitty yells, "Holy catnip!"; and when Witchling calls the town below their broom "Candy land!"

Illustrator Harry Bliss plants clever touches in his cartoon-like spreads that kids and parents can discover, such as Witchling cooking a potion in her "Easy-Bake Cauldron" and playing with a skeleton doll labeled "Graveyard Barbie."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
