The Garden Witch is lonely, no one shops at her stall, no one visits her magical garden, and there is no one to talk to―except for the three evil rats she lives with. The rats will eat her if she upsets them, so she lives day in and day out the same until one evening she cries in her garden. In the morning she finds that the garden has grown her a little turnip boy, Mickey. The turnip boy with his charm and bum wiggling helps the witch refresh her stall and make friends in the community. The witch discovers her own power and with the help of Mickey, she turns the table on the rats.

Kyle Beaudette brewed some magic with his book, The Garden Witch. With the quirky illustrations reminiscent of Quentin Blake and the rhyming lyrical text it is sure to delight readers. The Garden Witch is a bit smelly and strange and no one likes to approach her. At home, she is besieged by three bully rats that make her serve their every whim. All that changes when she confesses her loneliness to her beloved garden which gives her a turnip boy. This charming book will be read again and again by elementary-age children.
