            Visual hijinks abound as a nervous witch gets swept away with trying to tidy up before company comes-only to discover that being with friends is what really matters. Tick, tock! Three cups. Tick, tock! Three saucers. With nine minutes left, everything was ready. Or was it? Itch t...he witch is having company over for tea. As the clock counts down to tea o'clock, Itch's mind is in a tizzy: is her house too twitchy? Is her home too itchy? Zipping and zooming, dusting and brooming, Itch sweeps and bewitches the mess away (just in the nick of time). But as soon as her two guests walk in, Itch's housekeeping comes unraveled. How will Itch tame such an itchy, glitchy, fidgety mess? Rising star Priscilla Tey uses computer-aided design (and evokes familiar computer glitches) to present a delightfully meta, intricately illustrated story that dazzles as it amuses.
