Synopsis from Goodreads:

In a world where everyone thinks witches are warty old women, a powerful and short tempered 9 year old is trying to find her place in the world, and make amends for something that happened when she was only 3. Her name is Paige, and she can bend the elements to her rather strong will. But can she convince people to accept her for who she is?

This is the first book in the "Magical Chapters" trilogy. The titles in the series are as follows:

1. Witchlet
2. The Pineapple Loving Dragon
3. A Magical Storm

My Review:
This is a cute little tale about a young witch wishing that she were older and taken more seriously. She is the typical young girl, with an extra special gift. Unfortunately she must struggle against unaccepting family members while learning about herself. Ziegler uses this story along with her impeccable descriptions to weave a tale that we have all lived through: Struggling to be yourself. This is also a story with a overlying moral of understanding and acceptance of others that has the ability to pull at the heartstrings of readers of all ages.
