In eight interconnected short stories, Zara, Ziggy and Zoe - three little witches who live together in Cauldron Cottage, in the Magic Woods - keep house (using magic, of course!), attend Wizard Wink's school (which moves about the Woods, from day to day), and play with wizard boys Max and Mick, troll children Tig, Tag and Tog, and sulky fellow witch, Melissa. The preparations for their upcoming Halloween party, which provides a running theme throughout the collection, as responses to invitations (sent in the first story) come in at the close of each selection, culminate in the big evening itself, in which all the residents of the Magic Woods gather for a festive holiday celebration.

The Three Little Witches Storybook seems to be one of a number of such themed story collections from British author/illustrator team Georgie Adams and Emily Bolam - see also: The Three Little Pirates and The Three Little Princesses - and is quite an enchanting little brew! The eight stories here all work together, as one big narrative, but can also be read in sequential installments, making it a wonderful book for beginning readers. The text is simple, but engaging, and Bolam's artwork is appealing, in a cute, cartoon-like way. Recommended to young readers who are looking for witchy reads with more sweetness than scare! ( )
