Hazy Dell won me over with a set of adorable monster board books last year, and now, they’ve got a full-length picture book! The Cyclops Witch Meets the Heebie Jeebies is all about a witch who isn’t afraid of anything… except a group of creepy Heebie Jeebies! The Witch tries to pawn them off on other monsters, but those Heebie Jeebies confound her at every turn! When the chips are down, and things get scary, though, those Heebie Jeebies may just be exactly what the Cyclops Witch needs.
I love this adorable rhyming story and these adorable monsters! Cyclops Witch learns to face her fear, and not to make rash judgements in this sweet story, and readers will love reading about monsters who aren’t really so scary after all. If you’ve read the previous Hazy Dell board books, you’ll notice a few familiar faces, and meet a bunch of new ones! The illustrations are gentle, with soft colors and adorable, wide-eyed expressions. Sesame Street introduced us to friendly monsters – Hazy Dell is keeping with tradition!
The Cyclops Witch and the Heebie Jeebies will be in demand, come Halloween, for sure – get your readers in on it NOW. More Monster Adventures, please!
