School Library Journal - 09/01/2015 PreS-Gr 2—Where does a witch go for a little relaxation? The fab-BOO Witch Spa, of course, where worn-out witches are pampered and primped from the moment they walk in the door. Readers accompany Leeza and her requisite black cat through a transformative day at the spa in the capable hands of the gnomes, trolls, warlocks, and assorted other creatures who work there. The flawless rhyming text doesn't skimp on content and seamlessly weaves in satisfying similes and puns without feeling overdone. Tireless alliteration describes every witchy spa treatment imaginable, from a "Broom Bristle Facial" to a "Scarab Skin Scrub." Roxas's mixed-media illustrations perfectly complement this whimsical offering. The pages are filled with color-rich layers and textures and plenty of details sure to satisfy those who like to linger. Spa experience will certainly enhance reader appreciation, but even those who have never set foot in a spa will delight in Leeza's day. What's more, with nary a mention of Halloween save for the publisher's summary, Witch Spa will have year-round appeal. VERDICT A delightful addition to collections that could use a new wave witch story.—Lynn Van Auken, Oak Bluffs School, Oak Bluffs, MA - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
