Editorial Reviews


"A humourous look at a young girl's imagination gone wild. Beth Pollock is able to further the hilarity of Maggie's scheming with her overly agreeable best friend, Sasha. The Witch of Bloor Street illustrates that one cannot let their imagination prevent them from truly seeing things as they are. Recommended." (CM Magazine 2011-01-07)

"The rich cast of secondary characters...help flesh out this satisfying story, which is told in Maggie's humorous, self-deprecating voice. Because Maggie is a particularly innocent sixth grader, readers as young as third grade can enjoy this window into the middle-school world and will hope to have friends like Magnolia and Sasha." (Kirkus Reviews 2011-02-15)

Format: Paperback
This is a lovely story -- both light-hearted and moving. With parallels to the Wizard of Oz, the book explores the magical realm of Maggie's vivid imagination and her struggle to excel in the real world. I love the humorous adventures as Maggie learns to embrace her own unique gifts. It's a delightful read, filled with characters to remember for a lifetime.
