Text: English, Dutch (translation)From School Library Journal:
Irma, a small witch, runs away when the other witches tease her about her big feet. That same morning, a little girl named Laura finds Irma fast asleep beside the toothbrushes. Laura, a practical child, takes the discovery in stride, consoling the little witch and helping her find a solution to her problem. The humor of this offbeat Dutch import comes primarily from Laura's matter-of-fact response to Irma's zany behavior. Laura's no-nonsense character is amusing, but at times Irma's craziness is a little forced, and there are too many pointless little bits of funniness that neither further the plot nor add to the characterization. The conclusion, in which Irma sends Laura a letter and readers are asked to decide how Laura will respond, is marred by a condescending tone. Appealing watercolor illustrations depict Laura as an appropriately plain child with a serious face; cartoons of Irma are out of place with the otherwise realistic illustration style. --Danita Nichols, New York Public Library
