Brunhilda's Backwards Day

Brunhilda the witch loves making trouble.


Each morning, she wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. As soon as she leaves the house, she begins to spread her mischief. No one is safe from her rainy-day spells, or her wart-growing charms! 


But then, one night, Brunhilda's cat makes trouble instead.


What will happen when Brunhilda wakes up on the right side of the bed? And why won't her spells spread mischief anymore?

A tale about doing nice things for others that goes down easily. -Kirkus
