Little Witch Hazel
A Year in the Forest
by Phoebe Wahl

Flap Copy Description:
Little Witch Hazel is a tiny witch who lives in the forest, helping creatures big and small. She's an intrepid explorer, a hard worker and a kind friend.
In this four-story 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?

My Thoughts:
Somehow I only recently discovered the whimsical work of Washington State author,  Phoebe Wahl - but I'm so glad I did! Her delightful illustrations, and wild and imaginative text, bring to mind fairy tales of a bygone era. It's no wonder that Ms. Wahl won the Ezra Jack Keats Book Award for New Illustrator for her first book, Sonya's Chickens. I highly recommend Little Witch Hazel to children of all ages!
