An entertaining story for children

Heckie is a kind witch who wants to rid the world of evil people. With the help of her familiar who breaks out in pussy boils every time someone evil comes near, and a kind boy named Daniel, she turns nasty people into animals and puts them in the public zoo. It is well read and entertaining. Some of her children's stories are aimed at the age 8+ group, but this one is readily accessible even to the younger audience (my 5 year old is hooked and has no problems following the story, unlike Which Witch which she loved but needed some additional pointers to keep up). It is less gruesome and altogether a gentler story, with a moral edge. The writing, as with all Eva Ibbotson books, is engaging and funny.
