Nurit Zarchi
AGE: 6-10

Tanina is a magical witch- everything she says comes true. She puts her cat Belly-Button through magical crises, turns herself into a falling leaf, releases characters and letters from their books, and drives her two little sisters, Gol and Yat, absolutely crazy. Tanina lives in a perfectly realistic world of regular people. Her encounters with them, however, end either in wonder at their way of life (in the best case) or in amusing catastrophe (the almost-worst case). There's magic all around Tanina and despite being a fairly young witch, she excels in the art of witchcraft and takes full advantage of the perks that come with a magical existence. She is brimming with philosophical ideas and ingenuity, and insists on living her life the way she sees fit! Over thirty years have passed since Tanina, created by writer and poet Nurit Zarchi, first appeared. This collection includes twenty one stories, some of which are being published for the first time. Beware: reading them is bewitching!
