Thank you so much to Firefly Press and Netgalley for the earc to read and review.

Review: This is a really cute and easy to read story. The story follows young witch Grace-Ella who finds a forest pixie had snook into her bag at witch camp, with him staying with her trouble is bound to happen. 

Grace-Ella was a really sweet character, I loved that her cat talked he was pretty funny at times. The story was really interesting with Grace-Ella being a witch but not when she’s at school. The school had a fun fundraiser for charity which was really sweet, it taught lessons of how to be honest and tell the truth and also how to overcome bullying too. 

I really liked how much it offered to young children, they will learn so much reading this but also find it really enjoyable and fun. It’s a really great book for children starting with chapter books. It has illustrations within the book that are really cute. The troublesome pixie I mentioned above oh he’s fun, but I’ll not spoil anything about him.


Where to buy: Waterstones, Book Depository, Amazon, Firefly Press
