When I grow up, I want to be a witch, says a little girl. She would have a sparkly hat, a crystal ball, a wand to do spells, and of course, a broomstick. She definitely wouldn't cook up any smelly potions-and she probably wouldn't turn her brother into a frog. And spiders and bats? No way! Her companion would be her cat!

The Review: I Want to Be a Witch is the perfect Halloween themed story for you to enjoy with your little one. It's about a little girl who wants to a be a witch when she grows up. 

My 4 year old loved this and I have to say I did too. We've read a few similar stories about little girls wanting to be a fairy or princess, but never anything with a Halloween theme so this one was a different read for us but we absolutely loved the story. 
We really enjoyed how the little girl knew right from wrong and she had a clear vision of what she wanted. As you read more of the story you discover what aspects of being a witch the little girl wants and doesn't want. The story was funny and entertaining. The illustrations were very bright and very detailed. 

In all, I Want to Be a Witch was everything you could want from a children's story to keep your little ones entertained and a job well done to Ian Cunliffe! 

Thank you to Tiger Tales for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
