3.5 stars Adorable illustrations, okay story. But why wasn't anyone upset that she was close enough to their window that she fell through? Rounding down for that. ( )

Originally published in Dutch, as Nieuwsgierige Lotje ("Curious Lottie"), this delightfully witchy picture-book from Flemish author Lieve Baeten, apparently one of a series, was first translated into English back in 1992 (the year of its publication) - released in the UK as The Curious Witch, it seems to have been published as Nicky at the Magic House in Canada - before eventually going out of print. With the release of this new 2010 edition from North-South books, it has finally been made available to English readers once again, and to children here in the USA for the very first time. All I can say is: it's about time!

When Lizzy, a little witch with more curiosity than prudence, passes an old house with every window ablaze, she interrupts her nighttime flight to investigate, crashing through the attic window by mistake, and breaking her broom! Now what will she do? Give in to her curiosity, of course, and explore the house, following her ears and her nose, and meeting a variety of witchy inhabitants...

With an engrossing but lighthearted narrative, and lovely illustrations which perfectly capture both the magic of the tale and the character of its heroine, The Curious Little Witch is a worthy addition to any witchy collection! I particularly like Baeten's use of light, in the creation of scenes full of inviting warmth, as well as the design of the pages themselves, with half-pages giving way to full ones that show the rest of the room in question. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys stories of sweet witches, ala Dorrie the Little Witch! ( )
