"Mrs Blackhat" by Mick and Chloe Inkpen (Hodder Children's Books)

Here's a book that's absolutely perfect for today's spooky halloween goings-on....
Witches are afoot! In Dad-and-Daughter author-illustrator team Chloe and Mick Inkpen's fantastic "Mrs Blackhat" meet a witch who is getting ready for a fantastic halloween

Mrs Blackhat, as you can probably guess, absolutely LOVES the colour black.

She has a black hat (of course), a black dress and cloak, a black wand, the decor of her house? Well it's black obviously - but her car is...


Well, we love ginger cats but as you can imagine for a witch who loves all things black, a ginger cat isn't quite going to cut it...

A ginger cat? Well we think it's cute but Mrs Blackhat is not so sure!
She's coming to terms with the idea though - I mean this isn't just an ordinary cat, and Mrs B soon realises that it doesn't matter what colour you are, you can still be an amazing friend!

Magical even!

"Hubble Bubble Toilet Trouble" - We giggled!
A great little message in a book that's perfect for halloween.

"Mrs Blackhat" by Mick and Chloe Inkpen is out now, published by Hodder Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
