Starting his journey, Greer finds himself learning far more about his own identity than how to cast spells. Follow him and see how his unfolds in What Makes a Witch!

WHAT REveiwers Are Saying

“What Makes a Witch is a delightful novella focusing on magic and identity. The book is well written, fun, and perfectly appropriate for midgrade readers that also enjoy books such as the Redwall series.”

It is a charming tale with the feel of a fable and a wonderful message.  The characters are delightfully portrayed, and the world comes to life with a sweet undertone despite the harsh situation that the characters face.
