Zizi was once a flower fairy but her voice was not silvery enough and she constantly got her petal dress crumpled, so she was turned into a little witch but a good one. Red haired Zizi lives in Devon and her mission is to help all her animal friends like Chinkara the buzzard, Mara the owl, Maurice the Mole, seal pups Slip and Slap, Thermidore the lobster and many others. The stories are delightful, the illustrations completely charming. This book is ideal as bedtime reading or for young children to read themselves. They are full of wonder and a love for wildlife but at the same time, easy for children to understand and absorb, and the individual characters nurture an understanding for animals and nature. It's been a long time since I have read anything quite so charming.
