Author(s): Juliette MacIver
Join Little Witch and her friend Billy Wicked for three fun stories full of word plays, set in a magical land. Little Witch's favourite things are broom races with her best friend Billy Wicked and lemon-and-slime ice-cream with crunchy spider sprinkles. She would love to eat marshmallows for breakfast too, but she's stuck with toadflakes. Little Witch doesn't mean to get into mischief. Somehow though, she always does.
Juliette MacIver lives north of Wellington City with her husband and four children. She majored in linguistics at university, took a detour and became a bicycle courier for a year, then went back to university to complete a diploma in teaching English. She taught for five years before quitting and starting a government job, which she left once her first child was born. Juliette has always written little pieces, frequently in rhyme, and has had "write a children's story" on her List Of Things I Want To Do In My Life for a very long time. Little Witch is her first title with Walker Books. Cat Chapman grew up in Waikato, where her dad was a potato farmer. From an early age Cat has always been an enthusiastic illustrator. She has a design and photography background, but now works solely on illustration. Losing Turtle is her first book, and she has shown that she can smoothly add great charm to characters beyond what is written in the text. She lives in Mt Eden with her family.
