Which Nose for Witch?
A fun rhyming book from award-winning author, David Crosby. The story has an important message about being happy with your own image and not giving into peer pressure.
When a young witch comes of age, they get to choose their grown-up witch nose! But for Grizelda it is not an easy choice. She goes to the Conk Boutique with her mom but no nose seems to be as good as the one she already has. Her mom is getting frustrated with her daughter, but finally Griz sees the nose for her… it is the one in her own reflection! Despite her mom’s confusion, Griz points out that even if it is not normal for a witch to keep their own nose, she will be the first!
A great book for Halloween or any other time of the year!

Youth Services Book Review
“This is a lighthearted, sweet story of self acceptance and confidence in choosing to be different from everyone else.”—Youth Services Book Review
“Crosby’s rhyming text sustains a jaunty tone while accurately capturing the drama, and Coroa’s lineup of noses, sealed in jars on the Conk Boutique’s shelves, are frightful indeed.”—Publisher’s Weekly
