This book is about four kids finding out if the new gym teacher is a witch. If you like to do gymnastics, you will like this book. The kids think she is a witch because she has a broom and a black cat. She does strange rhymes that come true. She does backflips that look like she is flying. Is she really a witch?

I like this book because I like gymnastics and I like doing backflips. I like witches, too. I like witches because they are spooky. The pictures in the book made it more fun to read.

I recommend this book to a friend because I think it is a good book and it was a fun book to read.
