A charming graphic novel about a family of urban witches, Witches of Brooklyn beautifully balances enchantment and everyday reality, humor and seriousness, and sweetness and spookiness. The art is super cute and the writing is sharp! I loved how gracefully this story handled some difficult topics like separating art from the artist, how to handle major loss, and accepting one's emotions without shame. Overall, it was a fantastic series opener and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book! Recommended By Ariel K., Powells.com
