9781250004062: Only a Witch Can Fly

Only a witch can fly.

But one little girl wants to fly―more than anything. So on a special night, with the moon shining bright and her cat by her side, she gathers herself up, she grips her broom tight, and she tries. And she fails. And she's brave. And she tries again. Until . . .

Utterly enchanting, New York Times–bestselling author Alison McGhee's lyrical language and Taeeun Yoo's transcendent linoleum block prints create a bewitching tale about finding one's own path that will send your heart soaring.

Only a Witch Can Fly is a 2010 Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year.

About the Author:

Alison McGhee is the award-winning author of numerous books for children and adults, including the New York Times–bestselling picture books Somebody, illustrated by Peter Reynolds, and A Very Brave Witch, illustrated by Harry Bliss, and the novel, Shadow Baby, a Pulitzer Prize–nominee and a Today Show pick. McGhee is a professor of creative writing at Metropolitan State University and a founding member of Hamline University's MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults. She lives in Minnesota with her family.

Taeeun Yoo received the Founders Award―for the most promising new talent of the year―from the Society of Illustrators for her debut picture book The Little Red Fish, about which Publishers Weekly in a starred review raved, "exhilarating visual images . . . shutting the book feels like awakening from a dream." She also illustrated stunning new covers for Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time quintet. Born and raised in Korea, Yoo came to New York City to study illustration at The School of Visual Arts, where she earned her MFA. She lives in New York City.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

If you were a young witch, who had not yet flown,And the dark night sky held a round yellow moon and the moon shone her light on the silent broomand the dark cat beside you crooned, Soar, would you too begin to cry,because of your longing to fly? Only a witch can fly.
