Readers will enjoy the full colour, expressive and charming illustrations by Betowers that accompany the entertaining stories of Mía, the little witch.
🌟 Meet Mía Fantasía!
Mía is special because she’s the smallest in the wizarding Fantasía family. She wears colourful clothes and her best friends are a kitten, Vinyl, a greedy hairy dog, Bowie, and a blue hamster, called Small Ball. And not forgetting Rosalia, a spider that makes the most amazing pider webs you can dream of. Mía can talk to them all. That’s one of her super powers.
Mía lives in a very old and strange house in the middle of the forest. Her dad, Linus Fantasia, is an absent-minded wizard. Her mum, Enchanted Snowflower, is a powerful and arty witch. They are the coolest parents ever!
🌟 1. What a Strange Friend!
Fantasía family life is about to change with the arrival of the new neighbours. The Square House family moves in across the dirt road. Robert and Dora’s house is very modern, minimal and functional. They love to keep their life organized, in order, without unpredictable twists and turns. And so does their daughter
Lía until she meets Mía.
When Lía enters Mía’s world, she finds out the true magic of colours and happiness and discovers that magic does exist. Who would have said that Mía’s super-confident, daring and adventurous character would pair perfectly with Lia’s logical, fearful one. From then onwards, they become best friends.
🌟 2. A Kronk in the School
Readers who love fantasy, adventure and mystery are going to love this story. Summer holidays are over and Mía and Lía are
very excited to enter the first year of primary school. Among their classmates, there is a very unique and unpopular student
who is unlike anyone else: he’s much smaller than the majority of his peers. Tom, the bully-boy, tries to harm him until Mía uses her magic to save Max and gains two new friends, turn bullies into buddies.
