The first thing I thought of when reading the names of the children in the book was how great of a book this would be for young children, kindergarten or first grade, with learning the days of the week. Has a very similar storyline to Hansel and Gretel with the use witches and casting spells. Children could read this and compare it to other similar stories and be used during this time of year with Halloween coming up. The illustrations in this book were fascinating and incredibly detailed. They made the book complete and charming to read.
