The Word Witch (Book & CD)

Author(s): Margaret Mahy


The Word Witch is a cornucopia of riches, an inspired idea, which will long continue to inspire. A beautiful and essential book. Comes with a CD of poems performed by our beloved Margaret Mahy herself!

She can lasso with a limerick, haunt with a haiku and wrap you tight in a rhyme, quick as lightning. Her cauldron is a dictionary, her wand a mighty pen, and she stirs her words at midnight, making tempting treats for children, to please and tease and tantalise them with imaginary treasures and delectable dreams. She weaves words into adventures, sets verses wildly dancing, makes similes sing and stamp their feet and poems purr like pussycats who've eaten all the cream. Her name is Margaret Mahy. These are her spells.
