Read full description of the books:
I had to read this book because I was so tickled by its title.
This is a weird book, unless I had some pages missing, which maybe I did, but my copy of the book looked intact.
This is a silly simple story about witches, and it’s a fun book to read aloud.
My favorite pages were the witches in hammocks and the end when it’s revealed what scares this group (woggle) of witches. Some kids might chortle at certain points in the story; it is cute and amusing.
But, on the inside front cover it says: “Did you know, for instance, that a medium-sized group of witches is know (among witches that is) as a “woggle” of witches?” And the word woggle is in the book’s title, BUT, nowhere in the story does the word woggle appear. Strange! And disappointing. But I really liked it anyway.
I loved the atmospheric illustrations with their dark colored background. For the most part, they’re fun vs. scary, although it is possible that fearful children might be a bit scared at times.
