Witch Twins and Melody Malady Hardcover – July 1, 2003
From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-In this third book in the series, sixth-grade witches Luna and Claire get to live every child's fantasy. Their stepmother, a journalist, has landed an interview with Melody Malady, a young movie and television star, and she arranges for the twins to meet her. Claire, who is Melody's number-one fan, is soon hanging around her, dressing like her idol, and ignoring her sister. In the meantime, Luna befriends Melody's unglamorous twin, Dolores, an avid geologist. The witches must use their newly learned ability to change into animals to help mend a rift between Claire and her stepmother and to save Dolores when she gets lost in Valley Forge National Park. The theme of this story is loving and appreciating your siblings, and it's a little heavy-handed. The characters are a bit flat, but fans of the series will enjoy this offering.

Gr. 3-6. Sixth-grade witch twins Claire and Luna have a brush with fame in the third book in Griffin's ebullient, quirky series that has a Sabrina, the Teenage Witch feel to it. When their stepmother tells the twins that they will have the chance to meet the young star of The Melody Malady Show while she's filming a movie in Philadelphia, Claire flips, literally, because she and her sister both "love-love-love" Melody. Luna, however, is jealous of Melody, a fire that burns greener still when the celebrity befriends her sister and offers her a part in her movie. Meanwhile, Luna befriends Melody's twin sister, Dolores, a brainy rock hound whom Claire dislikes. Why can't everyone just get along? There's nothing like a dramatic rescue attempt to put relationships in perspective, though, and, with a little magic, all ends well. Younger Sabrina fans will relish this often-amusing story of two sets of ordinary yet extraordinary sisters who have a few tricks up their sleeves. (A small point: the author continuously refers to a salamander as a reptile; it is an amphibian.) Karin Snelson
