  • The Not So Wicked, Wicked Witch is a children's book about a witch that is "labeled" in name only. The story itself reveals an old philosophy "you cannot judge a book by it's cover, but read the contents and then decide". The Witch in this book has the "witch image", however, get to really know her and see who she is inside and out!


    Amy Carter is a native Mississippian. She is a graduate of Jackson Preparatory and University of Mississippi achieving her Bachelor Degree in English and History.
    Amy’s career has been in marketing mainly within the insurance industry. Writing children’s literature has been a hobby she has enjoyed for many years which led to the recent publication of The Not So Wicked, Wicked Witch.


    The Not So Wicked, Wicked Witch is a delightfully fun story that encourages children to look beyond what they see and to never assume they know someone until they really take the time to. Witches usually get a bad rap for being wicked and nasty. The witch in this story does not fit that mold. She is far from wicked and delights in wearing pink instead of orange. Her hobbies include baking wonderfully smelling cookies to share with the children in the her neighborhood, and though she has tried to follow the ways of other wicked witches, this witch has realized that being good is much more fun.

    Children from ages 3 to 10 will love this new seasonal favorite, and readers alike will enjoy the fascinating illustrations of this adorable character.
