A graphic novel loosely based on Little Women (or so I'm told, I'm the local heathen who hasn't read Little Women), Little Witches follows the March sisters during a few weeks where mysterious things are happening in their little town and they're trying to solve the ~mystery~ of it all. It's a fun little book, but very predictable and it felt kind of flat. The art was nice, though!

4/5

This is a very cute, fantasy retelling of Little Women where every member of the March family is a witch. It's been years since I've read Little Women, but there were a number of scenes in the graphic novel that I recall something similar in the novel. I thought the art in particular was very cute.

It could have been a little longer to better explain the magic system and to wrap things up in the end, but it's still a fun story. #netgalley
