Waverly the Witch: Waverly's Magical Adventures, A Magical Adventure for Children Ages 3-9 is a children’s fantasy adventure picture book written by Angela Lindsey and illustrated by Corryn Webb. Waverley was nervous about attending a new school after her family moved to a new town, but she soon discovered her school was rather special. She couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw a teacher in wizard robes, and there was even a wand she noticed in the cafeteria during lunch. What kind of school was this anyway? Her curiosity and excitement grew even deeper when she stumbled upon a classroom where potions were being brewed by the students, creating marvelous bubbles tinted in neon shades that floated throughout the room. And while it was all strange and new, Waverly felt comfortable with it all. She loved her new school and the friends she was making there, and she couldn’t wait to tell her parents all about it.
Angela Lindsey’s Waverly the Witch addresses the fears kids and grownups often feel when encountering new experiences and places. As Waverly discovers, her new school is a warm and friendly place where she feels perfectly at home. I appreciated how her parents encouraged her to discover the magical qualities of her school and herself for herself. Corryn Webb’s images are the perfect accompaniment to this charming story. Each page holds clues for careful readers to learn more about Waverly and her family’s magical background. Likewise, those panels showing the school are brimming with magic -- dragons, pointed hats, wands, and even a flying broomstick or two can be spied as young readers follow Waverly’s adventures. While an excellent selection for story hour, Lindsey’s choice of vocabulary and large font make this a perfect choice for a new reader, magical even. Waverly the Witch: Waverly's Magical Adventures is most highly recommended.
