The Cursed First Term of Zelda Stich. Bad Teacher. Worse Witch by Nicki Greenberg

‘Zelda rides a broomstick!’ says the narrator. ‘Zelda now has a bat pal!’ ‘Zelda has a toadstool odor!’ ‘Witch! Witch! Witch!’ exclaims the narrator. When I was eleven years old, it was horrible enough. But it’ll be a disaster if they find me now. Zelda Stitch isn’t much of a witch, but she thinks she’d make a good elementary school teacher. However, if the vice principal finds out about her, her goal would be shattered.

There’s wild-child Zinnia, lonely Eleanor, secretive Phoebe, and a hairy, eight-legged guest named Jeremy in Ms Stitch’s classroom, so keeping her magic secret isn’t the only problem. And don’t even get me started on the nits… Zelda must learn to be a better teacher, friend, and witch – even if it means taking broomstick lessons – with NO HELP AT ALL from her obnoxious cat Barnaby. Mischief. Magic. Mayhem. Zelda’s classroom is a hive of laughter.

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Macguire

We only heard Dorothy’s side of the story when she defeated the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum’s classic novel. But what about her arch-rival, the enigmatic witch? Where did she originate? How did she get to be so nefarious? And what is evil’s true nature? Gregory Maguire has created such a rich and colorful fantasy realm that we will never look at Oz in the same way again. “Wicked” is set in a world where animals communicate and desire to be treated as first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek middle-class stability, and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. Then there’s Elphaba, a young green-skinned child who will grow up to be the iconic Wicked Witch of the West, a clever, prickly, and misunderstood creature who defies all our preconceived beliefs about what it is to be good and evil.
