Waterstones Says

The beloved Studio Ghibli film gets the benefit of exquisite illustrations from former Waterstones Children’s Book Prize category winner, Joe Todd-Stanton. An enchanting tale of a trainee witch learning to make the most of her magical abilities, Kiki’s Delivery Service is pure escapism for young and old alike.

This classic, magical story translated by Emily Balistrieri, will enchant new readers and fans of the beloved Studio Ghibli animation (now on Netflix).

Kiki is a trainee witch. On her thirteenth birthday she must follow tradition and leave home to find a new village.

She knows she has to use only her powers to make a living, but Kiki's no good at potions or spells...can she use her flying abilities to make her own way in the world?

She sets out with her beloved black cat Jiji on an exciting journey, making new friends along the way.
