In times of great need, a beautiful, kind and generous witch appears in the land to lend assistance and to heal all hurts. Such is the basis of the new children's fantasy Angel Wings, Faery Dust and Other Magical Things: A Story About Witches, Warlocks and Such. With the help of her guardian angel, other witches and wizards, faeries, elves and magical creatures, the good witch is able to visit towns and villages all over the world to make the world a better place. This good witch has certainly earned her Angel Wings! Says the author, "At times I look around the world and see all the hurt and anger, and feel like I need to be proactive in helping things change. Teenagers respond so well to positive affirmation, and when the people in their lives believe in them rather than condemning them. My role as a teacher is not only to teach, but to help students develop their potential as brilliant, kind and giving people. Sometimes, a single word or action, a random act of kindness is all it takes to heal someone who is hurting." Roxanne Roberts is a high school teacher and the mother of a teenager and a toddler. She lives in Northern Queensland, Australia. "I have always been attracted to the healing arts and to non-Western/traditional forms of healing." She credits JK Rowling with encouraging a generation of children to once again grow up with the belief in magic. Her next book in the series is about a mermaid and saving the oceans.

Has anyone heard of a fairytale or a children’s story with a witch as the protagonist?.. Well, here’s one and it’s a good one.
Actually better than good since underneath its words and the story itself is a deeper message that should be understood by everyone, especially by children.
It made me realize that it’s not really necessary to solve a problem with the solution you’re thinking, sometimes there are remedies everywhere that we just have to look and see for ourselves… and sometimes what we need is not a helping hand to solve it, but to help us withstand it.
Also, it’s a good take on witches since children are always afraid of them..but in this case witches are like faerie godmothers Cinderella have..:)..Plus the addition of the witch’s guardian angel.
As the first book, the tone and words are conversational..easy for children to understand,..but there are subtle meanings that I guess the parents should be the one to explain to them. And of course, the illustrations are definitely accurate and nice. It’s also a well-written book, with vivid and child-friendly descriptions...
My baby brother loves the book and I love it too.......so grab this one now for your little ones..:).....
