Little Witch Hazel


Little Witch Hazel is a tiny witch who lives in the forest, helping creatures big and small. She's a midwife, an intrepid explorer, a hard worker and a kind friend. In this four-season volume, Little Witch Hazel rescues an orphaned egg, goes sailing on a raft, solves the mystery of a haunted stump and makes house calls to fellow forest dwellers. But when Little Witch Hazel needs help herself, will she get it in time?

"The detailed, evocative worldbuilding will have readers lingering...Refreshingly, nothing is sanitized: Little Witch Hazel is not gaunt and whimsical; she’s curvaceous, sturdy, and strong...The writing is lush and lyrical (“milky clouds…hung low”), and the textured, earth-toned illustrations expertly capture Hazel’s world, both cozy (her tiny home) and gloriously wild (the forest she tends to)... More Mosswood, please."Kirkus Reviews, starred review


“A thread of loving and nurturing emerges through this treasury of quiet adventures—no creature in the forest is too small to escape Little Witch Hazel’s attention, and readers will find satisfaction in seeing the way her sturdy care succors her community and results in gentle reciprocation.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
