Wow! I just loved this graphic novel. Our heroine is a witch who finds herself out of work - the life of witch just isn't what it used to be. She ends up (with help from her familiar/dog) finding a job as the cafeteria lady at a nearby school.
Unfortunately, her secret identity is threatened by one of the students, a girl who needs some witchy assistance. The child threatens to blow the witch's cover if she doesn't do a spell for her. Fun and madcap high jinks ensue.
Great story, delightful characters, surprising plot - what's not to like? The illustrations are fantastic, too - the quirky style and monochromatic color scheme are a perfect fit for this engaging tale. Oh, and the bats. I love the bats! Check this one out. You won't regret it.
