Victoria’s review for the book

Feb 08, 2020 Victoria Zigler rated it Five Stars

This was another great mystery by this author, which makes for a fun addition to this series, as well as an enjoyable read in its own right. The characters are wonderful, and I’m enjoying watching them grow and learn, while the story – which is a fantastic combination of mystery and paranormal elements – unfolds.

One of the reviews for Witchlet on Goodreads

Robbie Cheadle rated it Four Stars

The Witchlet is a lovely story about a nine year old girl, Paige, who is a witch. Paige is an obliging girl who is happy to assist other people in need but she has a quick temper and bears a lot of unjustified guilt due to an unfortunate accident, when she was only three years old, when her uncontrolled magic powers resulted in her cousin being injured and permanently disfigured. Paige’s aunt has never forgiven her and when she comes to visit, Paige’s mother hides all indications that she is a witch.

Paige is frustrated and the reasons are threefold: 1. her father was not able to cope with the idea of her being a witch and left her and her mother to manage on their own, 2. people do not have faith in her abilities initially due to her age and she is tired of being treated like a child, although she is one and her powers don’t change that fact, and 3. her guilt and her aunt’s attitude towards her which are things she has been unable to change.

In this book, Paige performs an act of magic which saves the life of a three year old girl, a feat for which the girl’s grandmother is extremely grateful. When Paige’s aunt comes to visit after this piece of magic, certain disclosures and events are put in motion which will change life for Paige. Will these changes result in positive changes to Paige’s life? You’ll have to read the book to find out

  1. Thanks for sharing my review of Janice’s book, Sally. Also, thanks for spotlighting “Witchlet” – and Robbie’s review for it – while you were at it.

    Janice’s books are fantastic. I need to read the last couple for her “Abby & Holly” series, which I’m sure I’ll enjoy as much as I’ve enjoyed the first few in that series, as well as her “Davey & Derek” series.
