­Editorial Flamboyant. Mar. 2022. 116p. pap. ISBN 9788418304668. SP.
Gr 2-5–This whimsical story follows Malvarina, a girl who has a great desire to become a witch. The valley where Malvarina lives is a very haunted one. The governors are three extremely evil witches full of dangerous spells. The town’s residents fear and do not dare to approach them. Although Malvarina understands that witches are not welcome where she lives, she curiously has a great desire to be like them. The book has colorful illustrations, with lots of oranges, purples, and blacks. Readers eventually get to know Cornelia, Clius, and Moss and the three kittens that accompany them. What follows is the story of how Malvarina becomes a witch with the help of the sisters, from her wardrobe to her magical tricks and pet. The interactive book contains questions prompting readers to guess different things, such as which cat belongs to which of the sister witches. Filled with many laugh-out-loud moments, this book is super fun.
VERDICT An animated and highly illustrated middle grade tale with a plucky heroine, this book will bewitch readers.
