From author Diana Murray and illustrator Heather Ross, of Grimelda: The Very Messy Witch, comes a hilarious sequel starring Grimelda that is reminiscent of Norman Bridwell’s classic The Witch Next Door. This time Grimelda is on the search for her spell book so she can win first place her local pet show.

With the right spell Grimelda knows she can make her cat Wizzlewarts spooktacular in seconds. But when her spell book goes missing in her untidy room, will Grimelda find another spooktacular pet to win the prize, or will her magic make an even larger mess?

Told in rhyming verse with charming illustrations of pet monsters and all things witchy on every page, Grimelda is perfect for Halloween but also a fun read-aloud all year round for mess-makers everywhere.

Grimelda spots a flyer advertising the upcoming Spooktacular Pet Show and she immediately thinks of her pet cat. The only problem is that she doesn't think he's spooktacular enough to win. But with her spellbook missing, there's nothing she can do about him.

So, Grimelda sets out to find a new pet for the show. Each animal she comes across doesn't seem right and when she runs into danger with a monster eel, she decides it's best to return home. Settling for her cat, she's surprised to see that he has found her spellbook. Now, they can win the show for sure, but nothing really is certain, is it?

GRIMELDA AND THE SPOOKTACULAR PET SHOW has fun and clever rhymes that makes it exciting to read to my daughter. I loved the animals and Grimelda was a character I would like to see more of.

Final Verdict: This was an entertaining read that had my daughter smiling at the rhyme scheme. I would recommend this to those who love to read to their children and to those children who love rhymes with a twist of fantasy.

A fun and silly story to delight all young readers.

Grimelda is a witch who has lost her spellbook at a most crucial time. She needs it in order to win a pet show. Everyone else has cool pets such as dragons that are much more spooktacular than her fluffy kitty, but she can change that as long as she can find her book.
This story is adorable so just so well written. The rhymes are fantastic. Too many children's books don't rhyme anymore. These lines roll off the tongue pleasantly and easily making it a fun read for both the reader and the listener.
Final verdict:
The perfect story to have a little fun with young kids who love books. Cute images and well-done writing make this a worthwhile read.
