Originally published in the UK as Titchy Witch and the Bully Boggarts, this beginning reader from Scholastic - Level 3 in their Scholastic Reader system, indicating the presence of larger "chunks" of text (as opposed to shorter sentences) - Wanda Witch and the Bullies sees it eponymous heroine facing off against Gobby Gool and his bully brother at school. Never loathe to use her magic, Wanda acquits herself well, but must then contend with the Gool brothers' seven goblin cousins after school...

Although there are eight Titchy Witch titles thus far, only four of them have made it to the USA, starting with this entry (the second of the British titles) in the series. I'm not sure why Scholastic felt it was necessary to change the titles, nor am I entirely sure that I agree, based on their description of what constitutes a Level 3 reader, that this is advanced enough, but leaving aside those issues, Wanda Witch and the Bullies is a fairly engaging witchy adventure, sure to appeal to beginning reader fantasy fans and Halloween lovers.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439730007, Paperback)

Meet Wanda Witch, a bright young girl with special powers who is the star of several new Level 3 Scholastic Readers with full-color illustrations!

When Wanda Witch arrives at school with Cat-a-Bogus, she gets picked on by Gobby-goblin and his mean brother! She turns their faces into sausages and cabbages, and they set their slimy, mean boggart cousins loose on her. But Wanda uses her very special powers to turn them all into boggart-fairies!

Bully Boggarts is the first of four whimsical Wanda Witch stories that Cartwheel will publish.
