Story Mama Quick Review:

I was so excited to get my hands on this very first book in the new series by Sally Rippin. Polly is a witch and she is terrible at spells. She is also quite impulsive and has trouble controlling her feelings sometimes. Buster is a feelings Monster, full of empathy and the perfect best friend for Polly. He empathises with Polly's feelings so much that he shrinks when she is sad and blows up pink when she is happy. Monsters are second class citizens where Polly lives and they shouldn't really be friends. When during an excursion to a gallery Buster calls out excited to see Polly she ignores him. Will their friendship survive when the world is against it? Will a little bit of magic help?


We love the vintage feel of the book and the themes of racism, loyalty, acceptance, friendship and empathy.

With 280 pages, and 23 chapters, this is a great classroom read aloud or novel for kids who love magical worlds. We highly recommend for ages 7-11
