Are you looking for a funny, quirky chapter book for your youngster? Well I've found one that might be just the thing your kiddo would love to read. The great thing? It's currently FREE on Amazon!
The Witch with The Glitch centers on three friends - Ivy, Oswald and Nina - who help out in a bookstore owned by Nina’s aunt and uncle. The friends cut corners when tidying up so they have plenty of time to go on adventures. In this particular adventure they meet a witch who lives in a gingerbread house and turns the trio into a werewolf, a ghost and a vampire. They must find the mysterious Izzy before midnight or they’ll remain little monsters forever.
This was a quirky, humorous children’s chapter book. It’s only 69 pages, but the author includes a great deal of action-packed adventure for young readers. There’s a nod to Dracula, Hansel and Gretel and even Ghost Busters that may or may not go over a youngster’s head. The author inserts some personal commentary here and there throughout the book that some readers might find distracting, but I felt it went along with the book’s quirkiness.
As a book lover, I appreciated the idea of a group of friends working in a bookstore and getting caught up in book-related adventures. This is certainly a unique and unusual children’s book that I think is worth reading!
