"No matter what Pagan path we're on, [you] can enjoy Magickal Crafts. The traditions from the Madden and Roberts households are tried and true, too. When people ask me what books besides my own I can recommend, Magickal Crafts will be high on my list. When you buy this book for your own library, think about buying a second copy, so you can loan one to friends and keep the other within reach at all times." Ashleen O'Gaea, author of Raising Witches and Celebrating the Seasons of Life(Vol. 1, Samhain to Ostara; and Vol. 2, Beltane to Mabon)
"Adults and children will love sharing these projects, and you will return to this indispensable volume of ideas time and again as the years spiral by. From making masks to herbal soaps, from floating candles to pumpkin muffins, there is no better way to celebrate together, while becoming a deeper part of the year's rhythms." Mike Nichols, author of The Witches' Sabbats
