Not everyone gets to have a witch for a mom, but this little girl does! She is the witch’s cat. She knows mom is a witch because she has special potions in the bathroom cabinet (that no one is allowed to touch) and she cackles with her friends. She even has a special broomstick that she uses around the room and even allows her special cat to take rides on it. Being a witch’s cat is the best.
I Am A Witch’s Cat is a heartwarming mother-daughter book. The illustrations are whimsical and original in their paper dollhouse format and truly portray a beautiful life. The analogies for why mom is a witch tell of the beautiful ways in which a mother shows her love. The characters interactions with each other are charming and uplifting. This is a book that will take a permanent place in your home, not just during the autumn but all year round.
