Some kids are frightened of bugs, but Witchbugs are not like all bugs.
For the first time ever, seven-year-old Sienna Witchbug is old enough to go through the portal in Whisper Village, through to the human world below, as long as she follows one rule according to Mama Witchbug: no magic. Ever since their Uncle Witchbug never came back through the portal, Witchbugs have been afraid to let humans see their magic. Sienna Witchbug sees a young girl who is sad because her family hasn’t grown enough crops for their farm stand. Sienna is astounded. Witchbugs don’t know hunger; they’ve always used magic to replenish food. Sienna thinks maybe they could help. Maybe Witchbugs and people can help each other.
A WITCHBUG PURPOSE is a picture book written by my eight-year-old daughter, Harper Patterson, and me. Harper is a lover of all animals but is not fond of bugs. So, we created Witchbug.
