About this deal

There are big themes that preschool-aged children go through, and each theme is handled with gentle care, humor and triumph. The only question I wanted answered was why was this witch so little, and the book does not address that at all. In "The Orphaned Egg", the diminutive witch finds a rather large egg in the woods and takes it home to keep it safe. i can absolutely see myself rereading this every season and it made me wish there was a little kid to share it with.

Our mission is to nurture a sense of belonging, inspire connection, and spark imagination through our colorful line of paper goods, gifts, and homewares. Highly recommended to young fairy-tale enthusiasts, or picture-book readers who enjoy seasonal stories with some magic in them.

And in "The Blizzard", the tiny witch provides healing care to the inhabitants of the forest, only to be caught unawares by a blizzard. It's full of the old-fashioned charm and magic of fairies; talking animals; witches who heal; adorable little homes made in the base of tree trunks, mushrooms, old shoes. Little Witch Hazel is a beautiful ode to nature, friendship, wild things and the seasons that only Phoebe Wahl could create: an instant classic and a book that readers will pore over time and time again. Little Witch Hazel will make you feel as if you have journeyed deep into Mosswood Forest alongside Hazel and her friends. The quiet but insistent rejection of conventional norms is both cheerworthy and effortlessly integrated, and the result is a story that can sit happily next to any classic fairy story as well as contemporary picture books directly addressing physical differences.

everything I loved as a girl, yet it also feels modern (for example, mousepappa staying home with the little ones; fairies with a variety of skin tones). and readers will find satisfaction in seeing the way [Little Witch Hazel's] sturdy care succors her community and results in gentle reciprocation. and readers will find satisfaction in seeing the way [Little Witch Hazel’s] sturdy care succors her community and results in gentle reciprocation. Ha la sovracopertina illustrata con la streghetta, invece la copertina vera e propria è decorata con dei fiori. The stories are darling and the illustrations are wonderful - I really enjoyed reading this to my daughter who immediately wanted to play out the tales from the book!It is such a magnificent book, and I hope we get to read even more one day about this character and her world. In Spring: The Orphaned Egg, Hazel cares for an abandoned egg, raising Otis the owl when he hatches. She is the award-winning author and illustrator of Sonya's Chickens , Backyard Fairies and The Blue House . The stories are simple in the very best way possible - they tell enough story to let your imagination fill in more details, but are still complete.
