Praise for The Only Thing Worse Than Witches:

Autumn 2014 Kids'
Indie Next List Pick

"Readers will banish themselves from the real world to finish this book in a flash."
-Kirkus Reviews
*Starred review

"An absorbing adventure for tweens and pre-tweens."
-The Chicago Tribune

"Magaziner's debut has echoes of Dahl's Matilda.... A fun, frothy story that will, well, charm its readers."
-Publishers Weekly

"The kids' slowly forming friendship has real grace and authenticity... in addition, Eva Ibbotson fans will appreciate the quirky humor."
-The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

"This debut is madcap and fantastical. It's the perfect thing for kids not quite ready for Diane Duane or Madeleine L'Engle."

"A solid choice for libraries looking to bolster their collection of lower-reading-level, middle-grade fiction."
-School Library Journal
