It is such a magnificent book, and I hope we get to read even more one day about this character and her world. There are big themes that preschool-aged children go through, and each theme is handled with gentle care, humor and triumph. I'd recommend it to those who enjoy stories about witches of the non-spooky variety, as well as to those who like picture books with a more classic feel. The stories are darling and the illustrations are wonderful - I really enjoyed reading this to my daughter who immediately wanted to play out the tales from the book!

The only question I wanted answered was why was this witch so little, and the book does not address that at all. i requested my library purchase this book and was so pleased when it showed up in my holds because i saw it as a recommendation for a fat main character in a fantasy world. Autumn: The Haunted Stump sees Hazel and her friends investigating a very spooky sound, and making a new friend in the process. The heart of this story is a simplistic, community-oriented life, filled with little adages for everyday life and living. Instead we just march through the four seasons doing a whole lot of nothing except walking around a tiny village peopled with all sorts of elves, gnomes, and forest critters.Author/illustrator Phoebe Wahl follows the eponymous Little Witch Hazel through the four seasons in this delightful picture storybook, depicting a woodland world full of enchantment and friendship. i read all of them back to back and was weeping a bit at how they all folded together, and how dreamy and precious each storyline was paired with the cozy art style.

Note if you have sensitive youngsters that the autumn chapter has a bit of a spooky focus where there is a strange moaning sound heard and characters wondering as to whether any scary monsters/creatures are making it (the images of what is being imaged might be frightening to some) though what it turns out to be is nothing scary and provides an opportunity for kindness and compassion. Whatever the case might be, she makes an appealing little heroine, and I hope that Wahl will revisit her world, with its cast of animals and magical creatures, and its days of fun and friendship.

Liked the story well enough but when I looked at other books by the author I came across her colour in book.

Of course, I suppose one could argue that the figure of the witch initially does come from the Wise Woman herbalist/healer archetype, so perhaps Hazel is a witch after all. everything I loved as a girl, yet it also feels modern (for example, mousepappa staying home with the little ones; fairies with a variety of skin tones).

The stories are simple in the very best way possible - they tell enough story to let your imagination fill in more details, but are still complete. I had never heard of her before having this one recommended to me, so I am glad to have that oversight corrected, as her story was engaging and her artwork simply charming. The writing is lush and lyrical, and the textured, earth-toned illustrations expertly capture Hazel’s world, both cozy and gloriously wild .

She grew up unschooled in Washington State, and credits her free spirited childhood in the Northwest for much of her inspiration and work ethic.
