Little Witch’s Big Night – Book Review
Luckily Little Witch knows just the right words to make Halloween a high-flying holiday!
Little Witch’s Big Night by Deborah Hautzig, illustrated by Marc Brown
A “STEP into Reading” - Step 2 Book
Its Halloween night and all the witches are getting ready to fly. Grouchy Witch makes grouchy faces; Nasty Witch shoots her cat with a water gun! And Mother Witch is making a new broom for Little Witch.
Oh No! Little Witch is in trouble- she has been good! She made her bed and cleaned her cobwebs. She gets grounded and isn’t allowed to go out flying on Halloween night. “This will teach you to not be so good”.
Ding! Dong! What will Little Witch do when the kids in costumes all show up wanting candy? She has never been home on Halloween so they didn’t have any candy to hand out.
Instead she gives them all a ride on her broom and has so much fun. She decides that she will be good all next year so Mother Witch will punish her again and then she can fly with her new friends!
