Reviews for Unwilling Witch : A Monsterrific Tale
Booklist Reviews 2013 October #2
This third volume in Lubar's Monsterrific series focuses on Angie, who gets turned into a witch on her way to the mall. (Angie's younger brother became a vampire earlier in the series, so this turn of events doesn't astound her.) She simply goes about her business, trying to figure out what to do with her confusing powers. Lubar presents Angie as a likable narrator who questions herself as she navigates bizarre events. Along the way, she must deal with mysterious, threatening characters, who make her want to go back to her more boring, power-free life. Calo's full-page illustrations depict the perils of spells, both Angie's accidental ones and the planned magic of an evil beauty. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring
The strange transformations begun in Hyde and Shriek continue at Washington Irving Elementary when Sebastian wakes up as a vampire and his sister Angie is unwillingly endowed with the powers of a witch. Can they revert to their normal human selves before it's too late? Lubar's mildly horrific stories provide intrigue and a classic good-versus-evil theme.
