Twitchy Witchy Itch

By Priscilla Tey
Illustrated by Priscilla Tey

Visual hijinks abound as a nervous witch gets swept away with trying to tidy up before company comes—only to discover that being with friends is what really matters.

Tick, tock! Three cups. Tick, tock! Three saucers. With nine minutes left, everything was ready. Or was it? Itch the witch is having company over for tea. As the clock counts down to tea o’clock, Itch’s mind is in a tizzy: is her house too twitchy? Is her home too itchy? Zipping and zooming, dusting and brooming, Itch sweeps and bewitches the mess away (just in the nick of time). But as soon as her two guests walk in, Itch’s housekeeping comes unraveled. How will Itch tame such an itchy, glitchy, fidgety mess? Rising star Priscilla Tey uses computer-aided design (and evokes familiar computer glitches) to present a delightfully meta, intricately illustrated story that dazzles as it amuses.

  • Ingenious use of the computer-aided design and illustration technology available to artists today. In this way, Twitchy Witchy Itch is a very modern picture book
  • Another book by the astonishingly talented Priscilla Tey, a graduate of RISD with a very bright and promising future. Priscilla's first book was In-Between Things (Candlewick Press, Fall 2017)
  • Proof that who has what, who lives where, what’s on the floor or what’s in the cupboard matters far less than the quality of your friendships and the gift of your hospitality.
