From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Grimelda the witch would love to try a new recipe but can't seem to locate the most important ingredient, pickle root. Realizing that cleaning her extremely cluttered house is the only way she'll find it, she sweeps, scrubs, and organizes "all night and half a day" till the house is tidy and she finds the pickle root, among other important things. But what self-respecting witch lives in a clean house? Children will love the Seussian rhymes that don't miss a beat and will enjoy following a tricky little spider determined to keep the missing ingredient from Grimelda. VERDICT The length is perfect for storytimes, and the illustrations are engrossing. A fun, nonscary selection for year-round sharing.—Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD
Praise for GRIMELDA: THE VERY MESSY WITCH: “The digital illustrations seem to revel in the mess, and there are lots of funny things for readers to spy and shake their heads over-how did that get there? Mess-makers will revel in Grimelda’s tale.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Both endearing and amusing. Playful, singsong rhymes will hold readers’ attentions while making Grimelda’s plight (having to clean her messy space) relatable. Bright, cartoonlike digital illustrations emphasize Grimelda’s haphazard life, and the circular ending will have readers giggling.” (Horn Book Magazine)
“Murray packs playful comedy into her rhyming verse and Ross creates a chaotically cozy swamp dwelling for Grimelda.” (Publishers Weekly)
Praise for Heather Ross’s artwork in CRAFTY CHLOE: DRESS-UP MESS-UP: “Ross’s spirited drawings, rendered in pencil and colored digitally, keep the action bouncing along.” (School Library Journal)
Praise for Heather Ross’s artwork in HOW TO BEHAVE AT A TEA PARY: “Photoshop digitally composed illustrations leave plenty of white space and feature brightly colored, energetic, and engaging scenes with action galore.” (ALA Booklist)

This book has been a huge hit this month. My daughter even dressed as Grimelda for her school's character book parade. Grimelda is on the hunt for her lost pickle root, an ingredient she needs to make a pie. Unfortunately, she is rather messy and has misplaced it ... or has she?!? The reader follows a cute rhyme as Grimelda cleans up and finds all kinds of lost things. My daughter thinks it's hysterical when she finds her spell book! The illustrations are incredibly cute. Keep an eye out for the spider as you read along!! Love the fact that it's a witch book that can be read all year long.
I've read a lot of picture books to my kids over the years, so I've become very selective on what I read to them. But I have to say, this is one of my favorites, too!
Shows the benefits of cleaning up, but that fun usually ends up being pretty messy - and that's ok!
