Mitzi is a city witch—she likes pizza and plays, crowded subways and noisy streets. Muffletump is a country witch—she prefers hayrides and fresh air, pumpkin picking and her pet snake. When the cousins visit each other, their differences come between them. How can they solve their problem? With a spell, of course! But finding the right one isn't so easy. The rhyming text makes this a wonderful read-aloud, while the vibrant watercolor and colored-pencil artwork contains fantastically funny details for kids to pore over.

Scott Gibala-Broxholm was born in a castle laboratory one dark and stormy night...no, not really. (Actually, it was Upstate New York.) Growing up, he loved to draw, especially pictures of old movie monsters. In the eighth grade, he even met master of fright films Vincent Price. Scott is a graduate of Syracuse University and spent his junior year studying in London. He has been illustrating for children for over thirty years. He and his wife, Janice, have two frightfully good children, Brent and Tess, and one cat, Sabrina. When not working, Scott likes to spend time with the family, read, exercise, and watch old movies. One day, he hopes to work with director Tim Burton (Hint, Hint).From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3—A rhyming story based on "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse." Mitzi is a city witch who returns home one night to an unexpected visitor, her country cousin, Muffletump, whom she has never met. Muffletump finds the city too noisy, crowded, and polluted, so she casts a few spells to make things more to her liking. When she decides it is time to head back to her country tree house, Mitzi tags along, and needs a few spells of her own to survive without her urban comforts. Finally, Mitzi returns to her city haunts and the cousins realize that they miss each other. They cast a final spell that allows them to be neighbors without sacrificing what makes them happy. Readers will enjoy the situation-changing spells. The illustrations are full of humor (some of which will be appreciated only by adults), including the wordplay built into the storefronts and signs. Libraries interested in fractured tales or nontraditional retellings may want to consider this one.—Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA
