"People who'd read Mrs. Parsley Makes a Delivery demanded more stories," (Author Julian Padowicz)
Mrs. Parsley is a good witch. Only a tiny percentage of witches are actually evil, she says, but they, unfortunately, get most of the publicity. She, herself, uses her limited magical powers to help Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the various fairy godmothers, when they get overloaded. But, because her magical powers are limited, and she can't fly in and out through closed windows, turn pumpkins into coaches, or work her "smart phone," Mrs. Parsley is often forced to improvise. As reviews of the first book will attest, the resulting adventures are of interest and amusement to adults as well as children.

My opinion varies from story to story
This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author. I’m unsure if I like these stories. I’m on the fence. Some were better than others. I did not finish the book yet. I had a hard time staying interested since I had not really enjoyed a few stories. I came back to the book twice, and on what was going to be my ‘last chance listen’ I heard the story involving Mrs. Parsley and a young boy on a plane. This story had some underlying good advice and moral. This makes me feel I’ll have to come back to it later and listen to the rest to see if I can find another one as good as this one. I’ll update my review if needed.
This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Patrice Gambardella ). She used different voices for each characters. She reads more than performs the book, but regardless, it is nice listening to her.
There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Mrs. Parsley: The Cat on the Mantle and Other Stories is a great collection of stories about a good witch that is great fun for everyone. Here's a collection of stories that kids will love and parents will love listening to with their kids. Patrice Gambardella's narration is a joy to listen to. I'm hoping that there will be more Mrs. Parsley stories in the future.
