Blurb: Sweets the Witch starts off like any other young witch, eating everything her parents give her. As she grows older she starts to only want to eat candy. Even having her teeth fall out doesn't deter her from her goal-to get as much candy as she can on Halloween night to last her all year.
She casts a spell to let children know that she will trade their candy for a toy or special wish of their choice (as long as it's a fair trade for their candy). They can trade it it all or just a bit, the more that they trade the more that they'll get! The children write down a wish or draw or cut out a picture of what they want and put it into Sweet's cauldron pot, then they put their candy next to it and when they wake up they will find their "SweetSwitch". Sweets is a kind young witch who enjoys trading and sharing with children.

 Micah and Katie Smith are the co-creators of Sweets The Witch as well as their wonderful children Lucky and Haven Smith. 

This book was born out of their necessity and desire to lead a healthier lifestyle after Katie's battle with brain cancer in 2012. 

Sweets the Witch solves the problem of having too much candy consumed and leftover on Halloween. By asking children to trade their candy for a toy or surprise, Sweets gets the candy she craves and the children get their special wish granted while still enjoying the fun of trick or treating.

My Review:

This is an adorable book about a young witch who has same problems as other kids- she likes to eat sweets more than the healthy food- but she her parents do not let her- in her best interests.
The graphics and pictorial representations are very apt, funny and engaging.

The hilarity is one constant factor throughout. And the moral is clear. It sends its message in a very innovative way. And the imagination is worth commendation. And it not only promotes healthy eating, but also glorifies the act of sharing.

I just thought there was more to it, the ending seemed abrupt.
This is going to be a treat for your kid though.
