Wilma the witch was not good at magic. It was a joke in Windy Bottom, the village where Wilma lived, about her poor skills at magic. Her best friend Wilfred the wizard called her one day to say they were all invited to a special celebration to mark the four-hundredth birthday of Chief Witch Winifred. It had been ages since Wilma had been to a party and she was excited though she had nothing good to remember about her previous party, which was the opening of the Wriggly Newt Restaurant.

Wilfred knew she was not good at magic and he told her he would help her devise a plan. Wilma and Wilfred worked together on their new spell but on the party day, the party host, Chief Witch Winifred, was not in a good mood. She was upset that her favorite cat Whisker Woo was missing. When Wilfred and Wilma arrived, Wilma realized the whole town was there and she knew she could not get out of it. What happened at the party? Let us read the book to find out.

Wilma's Magic Hat by Philippa Rae is an enchanting story that will enthrall young readers with its magic, humor, quirkiness, and whimsy. Ashleigh James's illustrations add color and life to the story and the characters and make the scenes tangible for readers. It is a story that all readers will enjoy, especially the ones who like witches, spells, and magic. It is a good book for storytelling sessions at home and in schools. Children will love the characters in the story, be it Wilma, Wilfred, Winifred, or the rest of them.
