About this title

Synopsis:

When apprentice witch Cheryl Suzanne Endor joins Sean's fifth-grade class, amazing things begin to happen and Sean learns to accept as a friend and appreciate as an individual someone who is very different from himself.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 The supernatural and school struggles are two of the most popular themes in middle-grade ficton, so their combination should create a doubly appealing novel. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened here. Fifth-grade Sean has plenty of problems dealing with arch-competitor Mike, who always comes in first and doesn't let Sean forget it. When Cheryl Suzanne, a strange new girl, enters their class, she uses a few tricks to help Sean beat Mikeshe is an apprentice witch. Cheryl's aunts are preparing her for her future role, which includes minimal contact with mortals. But Cheryl longs for a normal life with friends her own age. Cheryl and Sean form an adventurous alliance based on helping each other find their own identities. The novel's strength lies in its believable portrayal of recognizable everyday situationsclassroom rivalries, sports competition, parent-teacher conferences, and so on. Given this solid realistic background, the witch fantasy isn't credible. No one finds it odd that Cheryl's plain gray dresses change color during recess or that her ice cream cone is never finished or that the field trip bus to the museum ends up at Disneyland. Sean's sister accepts Cheryl's special powers without doubt, even offering Cheryl advice on how to get along with her aunts. The conclusion is too rapid and too pat.
