The Witch's Mess is a whimsical children's book written and illustrated by Jason Bessler.
The story is an exciting fairy tale about a special friendship between a young witch named Brindal and her magic broom called Broom.
Brindal is always making a mess of things and Broom always gets stuck cleaning it up! I wanted to illustrate the mess in a way that was fun and exaggerated, almost as if it were a creature that followed Brindal wherever she went.
The whole time Brindal wants Broom to take her flying, but poor Broom hasn't the time…he is too busy sweeping! The mess becomes too much for broom to handle, causing him to snap...figuratively of course. : )
Brindal finally realizes the real mess she has made, not the one full of leaves, bugs, and dirt, but the mess she has made of her friendship with Broom. After a bit of compromise and teamwork, things are finally back to the way they should be, leaving them with plenty of time for laughter and adventure!
