Bloomsbury, 2016. ISBN 9781408852675
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. Witch Switch is book 2 in the Witch Wars Adventure series. It starts with a recap of the previous stores so readers who are new to the series can catch up. In book 2, readers will find the main characters, Tiga and Fluffanora, holidaying until they hear about Peggy, the ruling witch, leaving her position and leaving two gruesome witches in charge instead. Surely Peggy would not abandon her witch friends. Did she really go away with the fairies? Tiga and Fluffanora try to sneak into the capital city but due to unforseen circumstances and the appearance of gruesome witches, they are discovered. As the witches find shelter, they discover other witches are also starting to disappear. Why are these witches disappearing? Who would need them? It is up to Tiga and Fluffanora to discover the truth.
Witch Switch is a quirky novel about an amazing make believe world of witches. It is highly recommended for girls aged 9+. They will giggle at the spells and behaviours of Fluffanora and enjoy the adventure as the truth is uncovered. The text is descriptive and easy to read, encouraging readers who are new to novels. The chapters are also short and quick moving and the black and white cartoon-style illustrations only add to the quirkiness of the characters in this witch world.
