Graphic Novel Review: Little Witches

Little Witches by Leigh Dragoon
Little Witches: Magic in Concord 
by Leigh Dragoon 

4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


In this retelling of Little Women, the March sisters are all witches, training to learn magic from their mother, Marmie, and from crabby old Aunt March. Old Mr. Lawrence moves in next door with his grandson, but they are witch-hunters! As long as the Marches abide by the laws of Concord, the witch-hunters won’t bother them, so the Marches try to befriend their new neighbors. Jo and Laurie get involved in a magic investigation and try to unravel a curse, but will the March sisters’ magic be enough to protect their family?

I loved this graphic novel! The artwork is simple and eye-catching, with striking colors. The art panels made the storyline very clear and easy to understand. The expressions of the characters and the action really pulls the reader into the story.
I loved how the March sisters are reimagined, but all the fire and spirit in their characters are preserved. Many of the plot points are the same as the original story, but with subtle twists and added enchantments to make them fit in a magic tale.

It was fascinating to see how various characters and plot devices are reworked and rewritten to fit an entirely new story. I love how imaginative the writing is!
