Plucky young Daisy, now the court's witch, is back for another fact-based adventure alongside Queen Elizabeth.
As a young witch, Daisy Sparrow, gets used to her role as Queen Elizabeth I’s right-hand witch, providing spells and cures at her beck and call. But things aren’t completely merry in the castle. The constant pressure from the Queen’s advisors for her to marry and turn over her power to a male sovereign boils over. Enter a prince from rival-country Spain. Only, Daisy feels she has seen him before and something’s not quite right about him now. Can a young witch protect her Queen from the various nefarious forces circling around her?

"The colorful trinkets, flat backgrounds, and lax line-work provide a fun, simple atmosphere for Daisy to explore, and while the introduction provides historical context, even readers uninterested in Elizabethan England will enjoy following this young, likable witch on her daring adventure"
"The Queen's Favorite Witch is lively, funny, compassionate, endearing, engrossing, clever, and very well drawn, and uses history creatively and mischievously in the way that good fantasy fiction should"
