School Library Journal Review
K-Gr 2-When rain threatens to spoil the long-awaited Witch Parade, Delia changes the raindrops to cats and dogs. At first, her fellow witches are delighted, but then the animals begin causing trouble. Each additional spell causes even more problems. Hats and clogs spark squabbles, and bats and frogs make a mess. Young readers will enjoy the rhyming magic spells and the humorous details in the double-page illustrations. The stormy blues and greens lend a slightly spooky mood to this Halloween tale, but the cheerful, chubby witches and amiable ghosties are friendly rather than frightening. VERDICT A sweet and satisfying Halloween story to share with young audiences.-Rachel Anne Mencke, St. Matthew's Parish School, Pacific Palisades, CA © Copyright 2015.
