A warm and funny tale with a bit of magic every child can use.

One windy day the witch’s children went to the park . . .

Look out! The witch’s children are coming and that means trouble!
They are only trying to be helpful when they turn Gemma into a frog, the ice-cream van into a golden coach, and the pigeons into footmen. But then the witch’s children don’t know how to break the spells! How will they return everything to normal? Fortunately, the youngest child knows one bit of magic. It goes like this: “Mom!”

This funny and reassuring picture book is exuberantly illustrated and perfect for reading aloud.

Summary: All Gemma's worries about her first day at school are reduced to the absurd but never minimised in this wonderfully anarchic book.
