The book is totally informative.

2.5 stars

Very, very basic info for beginners. That part of it was fine, but what I have always found is that when a book describes itself on the cover as funny (or, "amusing" in this case), I rarely find it to be so.

It was obvious the author found her asides very funny, but to me, they were more annoying and distracting. Same for the sections where she wrote as her cat answering letters.

Also, her insistence that all witches are Wiccans (they're not), and the constant jabs at Christianity (I'm no

overall it was really good, especially for a beginner. it was heavily wicca based and when i started reading it i thought that was the path i was going to take but by the time i was done i changed my mind (not because of this book) so keep that bias in mind while reading.

Too focused on wicca-- everything else could be found in other sources. Also her attempts at humor were cringey.

I reviewed this book for a magazine when it first came out. I admit now, as I did then, that I wasn't expecting much. I thought it sounded very dumbed down. But what I found was, although the book is for abject beginners and is accessible for teens and new adult seekers alike, it's not dumbed down. It's available and simple, yet written by a highly educated High Priestess, and that really shows. This book is not going to go beyond the first doorway to Wicca or Witchcraft, and it's not supposed t ...more

Very fun and informative book!

Too often I find myself reading books on the Craft that are jam packed with nothing but information, which I then forget if I don't remember to bookmark it. Simply put, boring. Magick should never be boring! Deborah Blake has presented magick to us in an entertaining and informative way. In my opinion, more authors should be doing it this way.

I think this would be a good book for teens to start with since it has actual "normal" magickal practice in it rather than "H

Deborah Blake is funny and offers some insights into what it's like to be a witch. She runs through some basics of belief, terms, spells, and practices starting from A to Z. She recommends other books to read, has some funny anecdotes from her cat Magic, jokes, and history.

Overall, it's a nice intro to Wicca without being too heavy-handed.

Recommended to Kristina by: Myself
This book is a great book so don't hesitate to read it. It's more geared towards beginner witches so if your not a beginner you might find it pointless to read it. If you are not a beginner but would like to read it, have at it because it is a wonderful book for any witch to enjoy not just the beginner witches even though that's what it seems more geared towards. ...more

Truly enjoyable and super informative. Deborah has a wonderful sense of humor and she made me laugh with her Witchy jokes and personal insights. Magic the Cat is fantastic and I enjoyed his contributions to the book. I enjoyed Deborah's writing style, I felt like I was in her kitchen, learning from her and talking to her instead of reading a listed book of things. ...more

It was okay. Very, very fluffy and really sticks to the whole witches = Wiccans = Nature Worshipers.
Some of it was pretty cute but honestly not worth even $10. Knowing now I would have maybe payed $3 tops. Oh well.

Absolutely adorable book, I loved the fact that her cat co-wrote it. We met her at Pantheacon a few years ago and she has a wonderful personality and wisdom, I would recommend any book she's written. ...more

Amusing book to flip through, not “read". Not very in depth. Author is Wiccan so those who do not follow that path may not find this book helpful, I wish this was more accurately reflected in the title. Fluffy beginner book, I suppose it would work well for beginners interested in Wicca. ...more

A very good resource covering many aspects of the craft. I like her writing style, feels like a good teacher talking to you.

I checked this book out from our libraries overdrive and found it filled with interesting facts about Wicca. It's not a ritual book, just a 101 book.

This was a gift to my daughter when she was a teenager, and one afternoon I read it, and I thought it was perfect for her! Keep inspiring those young witchie-poohs Deborah!
