Kiki’s Delivery Service
by Eiko Kadono
Kiki is a trainee witch who, according to tradition, must leave home on her thirteenth birthday to find a new place to live – somewhere that’s in need of magic. No good at spells, potions and conventional magic, her only skill lies in flying so, when Kiki lands in the town of Koriko, she uses her broomstick to start a delivery service. Accompanied by her witty cat, Jiji, Kiki embarks on an enchanting adventure.
This beautiful modern fairytale inspired the Studio Ghibli animation of the same name.
