It’s not easy being a witch. Anise, a beginner 8 years old witch, is sometimes sick of it. When one day she says to herself: “I wish I wouldn’t have to be a witch!” she is amazed to discover that her wish comes true. At once, her cloaks change into casual clothes, instead of porridge with horse hair and spider legs, her mother serves cereal for breakfast, her teacher teaches math instead of potion blending and all the black cats disappear from the alley. While in this new world, Anise begins to appreciate her previously enchanted life, and she is determined to bring back magic into her life. To achieve that, she is reluctantly forced to ask for help from her young (and annoying) sister, Sage. Along their journey, she discovers new things, not only about enchantments and magic, but also about the value of friendship and love. This is a fascinating story, full of humor and magic.
