When the Witches' Retirement Home has a vacancy, Arabelle the witch and her cat Izzy move in and raise havoc!

The retirement home is crowded with sprightly witches: some are greenish, warty characters, some are aquamarine witches with blue warts, and some are pink with green warts! Every inch of space in the retirement home is overrun with a mishmash of the witches' patterned-and-spotted personal belongings. So, when Arabelle and her in-the-way cat Izzy move in, the witches trip and topple all over the place.

The topsy-turvy, multicolor fantastic illustrations of the outlandish Lesynski are charmingly magical.
