Pero incluso con las más fantástica receta, Leila se da cuenta de la terrible verdad: ella es un desastre en la cocina. ¡Oh, no! Afortunadamente, Leila tiene tres mágicas hermanas que están felices de compartir sus secretos culinarios con ella. ¿Eso la ayudará?

De Flavia Z. Drago, la creadora de Gustavo, el fantasmita tímido, llega una encantadora historia que seguramente deleitará a pequeñas brujas y reposteros novatos en todo el mundo.



Leila Wayward is a little witch who excels at everything she does. She’s the fastest flier, the most cunning conjuror, and the most superb shape-shifter. She has won trophies for potions, herbology, and alchemy—and now she dreams of winning the Magnificent Witchy Bakeoff! As the youngest in a long line of masters of the Dark Arts of Patisserie, Leila wants her entry to be perfect. But even with the most bewitching of recipes, she realizes a terrible truth: she’s a disaster in the kitchen. Luckily, Leila has three magical sisters who are happy to share their culinary secrets with her. What’s more, Leila discovers that baking with them is fun! Win or lose, she has already tasted the sweetest thing of all: acceptance—with a pinch of nightshade and a bit of mandrake. In a Spanish language edition filled with expressive and fancifully offbeat illustrations, Flavia Z. Drago’s enchanting story of trying your hardest despite your imperfections is sure to delight little witches and novice bakers alike.

In this charming picture book from the creator of Gustavo, The Shy Ghost, a witch who is spellbindingly good at everything discovers that baking is no piece of cake.
