Reviews

"As the descendant of a long line of benign witches, 12-year-old Kimmy is thrilled to be learning from her Grandma Bev how to temporarily Wake recently deceased clients of the family's funeral home. . . . Kimmy discovers . . . that a powerful evil witch is in the area, fatally feeding on the life force of her hapless victims. Though this sounds like it should be a scary tale, Lyall keeps the tone light. . . . Expect more chortles than screams; warm family feelings and comical touches keep the terror low-key." -- Kirkus Reviews
