synopsis of a witch

This joyous debut from well-known writer and editor Jennifer Higgie (Frieze Magazine) celebrates both the individual and the diversity of the world around us.

In kaleidoscopic colour, Higgie takes young readers on a journey from some of life’s most important things (baked beans!) to some of life’s biggest wonders (stars!). The perfect early picture book for budding art lovers!

Review of a witch

This short children’s book is all about teaching the little ones that they are unique. It shows them how many beans, stars, colours and leaves that there are in the world, plus many more items, but, there is only one of them.

The book is brightly coloured throughout, with each page being a different colour, not the usual plain white pages that most books have. The pages are also quite thick, so they won’t tear easily.

I love the illustrations. They are bold yet simple, and with vividly contrasting colours. The pictures certainly do capture the eye, but the drawing’s weren’t going to be basic and boring with the author Jennifer Higgie being an art critic!

The book will have children counting how many items there are on each page, and realising that in this world, there will only ever be one of them, whilst there are lots of other things.

A beautiful, engaging book that is perfect to read aloud with your child/grandchild etc.
