I was enchanted by this sweet and funny book, about a young witch who thinks she has no ability at witchcraft. Her apparent failings only hide her true talents, however! Along with being entertained (it was a hard-to-stop-for-the-night read), I was also appreciative of a more serious core that underpinned the story without intruding itself--it really spoke to me about finding and appreciating who we really are. But the overall feel of the book is light and fun, the characters are well-drawn, and the reading pace is quick. I'll be delighted to introduce some of the young readers at the school library to it! Highly recommended for both young and adult fantasy lovers. ( )

**I received a copy of this upcoming book from Dreaming Robot Press via NetGalley in exhange for a fair, honest review.**


Ludmilla, who prefers to be called Millie, is a terrible witch. She would much prefer to spend her days cooking, but to make her mother happy she struggles to learn her spells, potions and incantations. But, every time she tries, the results are horrific. Millie's sleep potions become chamomile tea, and potions meant to turn enemies into toads turn into chocolate instead. Then she's offered a chance to attend school with others from the Enchanted Forest. She accepts the challenge. It's embarrassing for a witch to attend school with non-witches, but Millie figures that school will be better than staying at home being embarrassed by her lack of witch-skills. At school she makes friends with all sorts of magical kids -- pixies, leprechauns, elves, and others. As Millie gains confidence, her magical skills begin to appear. The only problem is that she has very little control over them. Millie finds herself still questioning whether she is really a witch. Her friends decide to help her by taking her to see her father in the Logical Realm, a land with no magic. Maybe a trip to Salem, MA will help her discover if she will ever be a real witch.

This middle-grade book was such a fun read! It was nice to see the main character learn and gain confidence in herself. She had to endure teasing, bullies and self-doubt over her problems with magic. This story has a great message for girls and boys alike. Be who you are! The book is well-written. The story pace was perfect. The book got its message across without getting preachy or too dry. Sanchez incorporates a lot of age-appropriate humor to make this a very enjoyable, middle-grade story.

As soon as I finished reading the galley of this book, I went online and pre-ordered a copy for my granddaughter. I think this book has an excellent lesson in it for girls. Be proud of what makes you unique and always be who you are!! Plus, I know she will giggle at all the silly jokes. :)

This is Dianna Sanchez's first book. What an excellent debut book!! A Witch's Kitchen releases September 25th! This would be a great Halloween read for 8-12 year olds! (And adults too! I loved it!!) ( )

A magic-school book! About cooking! I am all in for that. The pacing was a little odd in places and the "villain" characters never felt quite real to me. But it was fun, and I think strong upper-elementary readers who enjoy fantasy will get a kick out of it. Reminded me a bit of an older [b:Magic Trixie|3839392|Magic Trixie (Magic Trixie, Vol. 1)|Jill Thompson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1347346376s/3839392.jpg|3884224]. ( )

Millie is a witch, a daughter of the witch and the first one of her kind to go to school. But she's special and it's because it seems her magic doesn't work quite right, for example, she turned their house spirit into a frog and she can't reverse the magic with a kiss.

This was a really interesting book to read.

First of all, this is a children's book. It's written for young teenagers and older children and I didn't quite catch that when I started reading. My bad. But did I enjoy it? Hell yeah!

This is a book about magic and magical creatures but it's also a story about unloved children trying to find friends and their place in the world. Millie, short for Ludmila (I loved how the witches had Eastern European names!), loves to cook and for a while it looks like the only magic she can make is for the kitchen. The other witches hate that, her mother ignores her, she doesn't have any friends despite being a really sweet eleven year old girl. But she's also smart and kind and she likes everyone and soon she finds a way to win everyone's hearts.

I love the message of this book. I love how it teaches children they don't have to fit in to be wonderful and that it's more important to be a good friend than the most feared creature in the Realm. I usually don't like mixing the real world with the magical world but here it was done good. I also have to mention that the author being Latina brings a lot to the story too, especially in the end.

I would recommend this book for mothers who have daughters, I think they'd love this as a bedtime story. I enjoyed it quite a lot.
