Books to be swept away with this summer…
There are SO MANY great books around at the moment and so I’d like to share a few that I think are particularly exciting. I’m not going to plop them all together in one post but give each the opportunity to shine in it’s own right…
Hold on to your hats… here are my summer 2019 recommendations.
Wish for a Witch by Kaye Umansky
illustrated by Ashley King
Recommended for YoungReader/Middle Grade (7+) & above…
Here’s the synopsis:
After her week living in Magenta Sharp’s magical tower, Elsie Pickles is back home and finding normal life a little dull. But when a magical gift leads her back to the Tower, Elsie knows mischief and marvellous magic are about to turn her life upside down again!
This time Magenta needs Elsie’s help to save her magic licence and deal with a grumpy genieon the loose! Will it all prove too much for Elsie and her friends? Even a witch needs a wish every once in a while!
A magical adventure from Kaye Umansky, the bestselling author of the spellbinding children’s classic Pongwiffy, brought to life with charming illustrations from rising star Ashley King!
Another story from the life of Elsie Pickles, following on from the rather delightful Witch for a Week.
Wish for a Witch was published by Simon and Schuster and you can find where to buy it here (also your local indie will be able to get hold of it too if they don’t already have a copy.). It’s also available on Kindle.
