  2. Absolutely love this, Penny…the poem, the art AND the whole series idea! You’ve given me inspiration to do something with my 6-yr old grandson. 😉 I wonder if I can do a Google+ hangout with him (we live in the same house), actually reading a story or poem and then doing a little craft…I used to do those by myself, but I think it would be fun – and more entertaining for any one who watched – if he was in the picture.

  3. Penny, this is the absolute best. Now how old is your nephew? That poem is quite good. And the illustrations, Wow! Well, it’s plain to see that the talent for rhyme is in the blood.

  4. I love that I read this on my tablet and couldn’t see the picture until I had read the poem Penny. Wonderful poem and I totally imagined a kind gentle witch and then got a fun surprise when she was quite witch indeed. Great job saying little witch to leave it to the illustrator to choose.

  5. Fantastic. You and Landon make a great partnership! I love the scary witch and the sweet little bat. I think we might need another illustration for this poem, because I really want to see Landon’s idea of what the Boo Lagoon looks like!
