Grimelda's house may not be tidy, but it's cozy, and that's just the way she likes it. She also likes pickle pie. There's only one problem--she can't find the main ingredient in her messy house! Readers who enjoyed Norman Bridwell's classic The Witch Next Door will love this funny, charming story about the everyday life of a witch.

With a repeating refrain and lively, rhyming text, Grimelda: The Very Messy Witch is perfect for reading aloud with a child at Halloween as well as all year round, or for an emerging reader to enjoy on their own. The vibrant illustrations by Crafty Chloe illustrator Heather Ross provide plenty of fun things for readers to discover on repeated reads.

A cute story, but not a moralistic one about tidying up: the little witch makes her home messy again in the end.
