STORY QUESTION: Will this wicked witch be able to change her wicked ways?

SUMMARY: Each morning she wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, puts on her ugliest dress, eats spider mush for breakfast, and brushes her teeth with candy. As soon as she leaves the house, she begins to spread her mischief. No one is safe from her rainy-day spells or her wart-growing charms, until one day, her cat makes mischief instead!

REVIEW: Brunhilda's Backwards Day turns out to be one of the best days ever as Brunhilda's world gets turned upside down. Both Brunhilda and her cat sidekick prove to be as engaging in the text as they are on the cover and every subsequent spread. Each and every well-thought-out artistic detail and color scheme choice just adds to the beauty of the book and the humor of the text. The reader will enjoy seeing if an old witch can be taught new tricks, and by a cat, no less! Satisfying resolution and fun twist at the end are a plus. Loved this book -- what an enjoyable visual and reading experience.
