By Cristi | July 20, 2011 | No comment yet Black Dog Books has once again hit the App Store and this time they have ventured away from the Violet series and introduced a new interactive children’s storybook app called Witchemina . Written and illustrated by Allison Keeme, Witchemina is the story of a “sweet and gentle little witch” who thinks and acts much differently than traditional witches. Witchemina lives in a dark and mucky swamp together with her sisters and while they spend their time casting spells and boiling brews, she enjoys much different interests like drawing portraits of friends, casting good spells and baking chocolate chip cookies. But, more than anything else, Witchemina likes to garden and works very hard to turn ugly weeds into flowers.
