city witch, country switch

Summary:

Muffletump, the country witch. Came to the city to see her cousin Mitzi. But she couldn't sleep ... there was too much noise. So with a witchy spell, the apartment was filled with the sound of sheep. Poor Mitzi couldn't sleep! When she took Muffletump on a tour, she kept complaining - and changing things for the "better." When Mitzi went to visit Muffletump, her allergies acted up ... and she used a few witchy spells to make some changes. Mitzi and Muffletump have fun, but are their worlds too different?

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
7 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 6
Age of child:
Read with a 9-year-old girl.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. This is a fun story to share. Don't get tripped up thinking it is a Halloween book. Other than the fact that Mitzi and Muffletump are witches, there is nothing seasonal about it.
Little Kid Reaction:

Our daughter laughed with almost every spell. She wanted to be able to turn the air into cotton candy and eat a field full of pizza. We read this one several times.

Big Kid Reaction:

This is a fun story, and not completely predictable. Mitzi and Muffletump have lots of personality. The illustrator does a wonderful job giving the cousins style - I loved the swim goggles on Mitzi!

Pros:

Two sassy witches and some cute spells create a book that is fun to read out loud together. The story is presented in conversation, so it can double as an easy reader.

Cons:

None.
