When the famous great wizard Linus invites all the witches to his Moon Mansion, she flies on her magic broom to compete against all them. She wants to be chosen as the great wizard’s disciple. Finally, when it’s Petra’s turn to show her strength, she presents her potion and is selected! The days go by, and instead of receiving new lessons from Linus, she receives a list of chores. One night, while she’s cleaning for a wizard party, she finds a room full of secrets; among them is that Linus has stolen her youth potion and will claim that it’s his. With her intelligence and knowledge of magic, Petra reveals the truth.

VERDICT A charming read-aloud.
