Witchy tricks on social media!

The energetic and well-intentioned witch girl, Thelma, takes a deep dive into social media. As usual, mishaps are guaranteed.

Thelma’s friend Ornelia introduces her to the world of mobile phones and social media. And like any other child, Thelma is quickly swept in by the crystal display.

It turns out that witchcraft is pretty good at going viral. But is fame great for the little witch girl that has grown up in the middle of the forest? Might it even be dangerous? The human-averse Grandma Myrtle is herself aghast at technology.

Be ready for delightful magic and goofs in the usual Thelma-like way!

The funny and warm witch girl Thelma is adventuring again! This time the reader gets immersed in the world of social media, so the work is not only entertaining, but also important. With the help of Thelma, children reading get a good idea of the good and bad sides of the social media world, and it's good to tune the conversation around the topic with the help of a fairy tale. Of course, there is also magic and hilarious comedy! Varjonen easily captures the listener's interest, and the work meets its target group perfectly!
