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."
-Booklist

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