Castle Hangnail is in the market for a new evil owner. Molly, a twelve year old wicked witch, takes the job. This book has print and graphic novel type pages melded seamlessly together. I loved this hilariously fun novel for the imagination that sparkles through each page. Molly is really wicked. As wicked as a hangnail.

This was recommended by a colleague and it is a really fun story. Good cast of characters with Molly being a great wicked witch. This would be a great story to read together for someone who is a bit too old for picture books.

ADORABLE. I love the entire cast. If you're in the mood for something sweet and silly and also my favorite (a story about the families we make for ourselves) then you should read this. You should also read it if you like stories with independent girls doing great things or you if you want a very entertainingly read audiobook.

Loved it! Quirky heroine with a heart as big as her boots does her best to keep her minion friends safe as she learns magic.
