Another wild romp in Sinkville follows Witch Wars (2016) as Tiga and her friends try to solve the mystery of disappearing witches.
Tiga’s friend Peggy is now Top Witch, but she disappears when the evil Felicity Bat and her sidekick, Aggie Hoof, take over the top spot, insisting that Peggy said she was “going away with the fairies.” They aim to get rid of every good witch in Sinkville. Tiga sets out to find Peggy with her friends Fran the fairy and Fluffanora (depicted with brown skin and poufy hair, in contrast to the rest of the evidently white cast). They search far and wide in Ritzy City and the rest of Sinkville, the land beneath the pipes of the upper world, where the witches live. Traveling through time to the disappearance of fashion designer Eddy Eggby reveals a slew of disappearances—and Tiga despairs of reversing the spell. Pounder creates her little world full of rivalries, friendship, and silliness with the aid of Anderson’s neatly tuned, wacky drawings. Her characters’ favorite epithets often involve frogs, such as “frognails,” “frogsticks,” “froglumps,” etc. They enjoy drinks and conviviality at Clutterbucks and dessert at Cakes, Pies, and That’s About It Really.
Plenty of zany fun in the land of the little witches. (Fantasy. 8-12)
