What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Only a witch can fly. But one little girl wants to fly―more than anything. So on a special night, with the moon shining bright and her cat by her side, she gathers herself up, she grips her broom tight, and she tries. And she fails. And she’s brave. And she tries again. Until . . . Utterly enchanting, New York Times best-selling author Alison McGhee’s lyrical language and Taeeun Yoo’s transcendent linoleum block prints create a bewitching tale about finding one’s own path that will send your heart soaring. Only a Witch Can Fly is a 2010 Bank Street - Best Children’s Book of the Year.
