Introducing Heidi Heckelbeck—a brand-new young chapter-book series with witchy whimsy!

Now readers between the ages of five and seven can read chapter books tailor-made for a younger level of reading comprehension. Heavily illustrated with large type, Little Simon's young chapter books let young readers feel like they are reading a “grown-up” format with subject, text, and illustrations geared specifically for their own age groups!

Heidi Heckelbeck seems like any other eight-year-old, but she has a secret: She’s a witch in disguise. Careful to keep her powers hidden (but excited to use them all the same), Heidi’s learning to live like any other kid—who just happens to be witch. And with easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, Heidi Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Heidi and her brother Henry have always been homeschooled—until now. But Heidi is not happy about attending Brewster Elementary, especially not when meanie Melanie Maplethorpe turns Heidi’s first day of school into a nightmare by announcing that Heidi is smelly and ruining her art project. Heidi feels horrible and never wants to go back to school—but while sulking in her room at home, she remembers her special medallion and Book of Spells. With a little bit of carefully concealed magic, Heidi might be able to give Melanie a taste of her own medicine….

        I decided to read this book because by the cover and by reading the summary on the back, I thought this book would be very interesting. It was about this girl named Heidi that went to school for the first time ever. This is because she was always homeschooled by her mother with her little brother. She didn't want to go to school in the first place, but she had no choice but to go. She thought it was going to be bad but she made a new friend. But she also made an enemy that didn't like her. But, she found many ways to avoid her even though that girl did horrible things to Heidi. She decided she likes school after all. I liked this book a lot because I thought it was very interesting. This is why I gave this book a 4 star.
