Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–A friendly young witch describes what she likes most about Halloween. She explains that although most of her kind …are afraid of humans, she has done research and concluded that people are not that bad. She plans to visit them this Halloween night as they trick a tree. After boarding her broom, she zooms in a circle, becomes dizzy, and crashes near some trick-or-treaters. She soon discovers that a brave witch and a brave human girl dressed as a witch are not so very different. As the book ends, the two new friends share a moonlit broomstick ride. The chatty text appears in dialogue balloons. Done in black ink and watercolor, the cartoon artwork captures the holiday's spirit with crisp fall colors and amusing details. Busy witches decorate their creepy-looking mansion by hanging skeletons, un-caging bats, and sprinkling spiders out the windows. In the Sub-Basement Costume Unit, a seamstress is hard at work sewing a monster paw; costumes line the walls (Frankenstein, a space creature, etc.); and politician masks share space with a jar full of eyeballs. Both children–one green and one not–are appealing, and the witch's orange cat, with its expressive features, adds to the fun. A humorous, not-scary-at-all read-aloud.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL

By J. Brady on October 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my 4-year old because this was the first year she was really excited about Halloween. So my requirements were nice pictures, something non-threatening but still in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, and a cute story. This book meets those requirements. However, I found myself flipping through the pages too quickly and having to make up extra words to read to my child to go along with the story. There are VERY FEW words in the book so it goes much too fast and is boring if you stick to the written words. Otherwise, the pictures are nice and story is cute.

I bought 10 of them and gave them to all the nieces and nephews for the Holidays. The story is cute, the illustrations are amazing. Bliss packs a lot of funny goodies into the backgrounds for parents as well. Its a real fun read, and the kids loved it cause there is so much there to find during multiple readings. Buy one or 10, you won't be disapointed.

Our 2 year old granddaughter repeatedly asks to watch the DVD of A Very Brave Witch, all year not just at Halloween, so we thought we'd give her the book. Good choice, she loves it.
