The witchy heroine of Alison McGhee and Harry Bliss's A Very Brave Witch returns in this follow-up Halloween adventure, this time determined to teach her younger sister, Witchling, not to be afraid of humans. Fortunately (or not), Witchling doesn't really need any help in that direction, finding humans, and the candy they love, immensely appealing. When Witchling flies off to track down some of the treats she desires, her elder sister sets out in pursuit...

Like its predecessor, The Sweetest Witch Around pairs a fun Halloween tale of witchy hi-jinks with colorful, appealing illustrations. Also like its predecessor, the text here consists entirely of speech and thought bubbles, making the narrative an excellent one for read-alouds. Harry Bliss's artwork, done in ink and watercolor, is more sweet than spooky. I liked the witch sisters' feline companion, and appreciated the decorative endpapers. Recommended to anyone who enjoyed A Very Brave Witch, as well as to anyone looking for witchy fare on the sweeter end of the spectrum. ( )

Good thing the little Witchling isn’t afraid to be brave!
