From the creator of Dragonbreath comes a tale of witches, minions, and one fantastic castle, just right for fans of Roald Dahl and Tom Angleberger. When Molly shows up on Castle Hangnail's doorstep to fill the vacancy for a wicked witch, the castle's minions are understandably dubious. After all, she is twelve years old, barely five feet tall, and quite polite. (The minions are used to tall, demanding evil sorceresses with razor-sharp cheekbones.) But the castle desperately needs a master or else the Board of Magic will decommission it, leaving all the minions without the home they love. So when Molly assures them she is quite wicked indeed (So wicked! REALLY wicked!) and begins completing the tasks required by the Board of Magic for approval, everyone feels hopeful. Unfortunately, it turns out that Molly has quite a few secrets, including the biggest one of all: that she isn't who she says she is. This quirky, richly illustrated novel is filled with humor, magic, and an unforgettable all-star cast of castle characters.

Castle Hangnail is in the market for a new evil owner. Molly, a twelve year old wicked witch, takes the job. This book has print and graphic novel type pages melded seamlessly together. I loved this hilariously fun novel for the imagination that sparkles through each page. Molly is really wicked. As wicked as a hangnail.

This was recommended by a colleague and it is a really fun story. Good cast of characters with Molly being a great wicked witch. This would be a great story to read together for someone who is a bit too old for picture books.

ADORABLE. I love the entire cast. If you're in the mood for something sweet and silly and also my favorite (a story about the families we make for ourselves) then you should read this. You should also read it if you like stories with independent girls doing great things or you if you want a very entertainingly read audiobook.

Loved it! Quirky heroine with a heart as big as her boots does her best to keep her minion friends safe as she learns magic.
