Jane O’Connor’s classic story for beginning readers Lulu Goes to Witch School has been given fresh illustrations by Bella Sinclair in this beautiful new edition. Lulu the witch girl is a little nervous about her first day of school, but she heads off with her broom and Dracula lunch box. 
She immediately loves pretty new teacher, Miss Slime, especially her wart.
Lulu’s first flying lesson around the cemetery goes great. There’s only one thing she doesn’t like about witch school—curly-haired Sandy Witch who seems to do everything better than Lulu. Funny, spooky Lulu Goes to Witch School is a Level Two I Can Read book, geared for kids who read on their own, but still need a little help.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-2 Arriving at school on her very first day, Lulu Witch meets her teach er, who ``had a long nose and a wart on her chin. 
Lulu thought Miss Slime was very pretty.'' This type of skewed perception should amuse beginning read ers.
Lulu's apprehension about starting school and her initiation into the com plex social dynamics of a classroom are described concisely and convincingly.
Lulu feels both envy and adulation to wards her perfect classmate, Sandy Witch.
Sandy's hostility towards Lulu may be provoked by similar feelings on Sandy's part: when Miss Slime admires Lulu's new dress, Sandy casts a spell on it, changing the pretty spiders to hid eous flowers.
It takes ``lizard pox'' and a new independent spirit on Lulu's part to bring the two witches together at the end.
McCully's watercolor wash and pencil illustrations add considerable charm and interest to this well-written story.
Character is revealed with minimal detail (as when Lulu's anxiety and Sandy's smugness is shown in their first scene together).
The humor wears a bit thin, but on the whole, Lulu.
is a pleasant and appropriate choice for be ginning readers.

  •     We checked this book out at the library and my 3 year old loved it so much she didn't want to take it back. Had to extend it several times so I decided to get her own copy for her for her 4th birthday and she was thrilled to see Lulu again! She loves to run around the house with our broom playing witches and even gets the neighborhood toddlers to join in! It's such a cute story that toddlers can relate to!

  •     Perfect Halloween gift for my niece

  •     Good

  •     Good service. Cute story.


  •     My 8 year old really struggles with reading so I generally choose books a couple of levels below her actual reading level to help her gain more confidence and find her love of books. She enjoyed the colourful pictures and fun story and has even read it again (a major step for her)

  •     This could have been a really cute story, but it quickly devolved into a tale of little girls being petty and cruel and competitive. Not a fan. This could have been so much better.

  •     Great for beginner readers.

  •     My daughter's new favorite book!

  •     Great for young readers

  •     What great fun this was to read with my grand daughter. Lizard soup and spots - OH my!! The best was the owl in the tree when the witches were learning to fly where we added "don't hit my house" Lot's of fun

  •     Super cute, funny book. My daughter was less into it than I was, but that's because she thinks she's grown and doesn't like to read. Great, relatable book. Would recommend for 5-6 year old girls.

  •     This book is cute... My daughter enjoys it and loves reading along. There's a lot of story along with great pictures on every page.

  •     My five year old loves this book! Not sure where her obsession with witches came from...well it's lingered since Halloween- but she enjoyed reading about Lulu and her experiences in witch school. The story had great details, including an opportunity to discuss bullying and self confidence in school as Lulu had a hard time forging a friendship with a fellow student. My five year old was able to read this book with no assistance!

  •     Cute

  •     My first grader is a strong yet lazy reader. This story really inspired her with the cute story line! I wish there was an entire series!

  •     Cute story. Lulu meets a one-upper girl in class but learns to be friends. Adorable story about liking different things than others.
