Nostalgic fans of the Miyazaki film and newcomers alike–soar into the modern classic about a young witch and her clever cat that started it all!
Half-witch Kiki never runs from a challenge. So when her thirteenth birthday arrives, she’s eager to follow a witch’s tradition: choose a new town to call home for one year.
Brimming with confidence, Kiki flies to the seaside village of Koriko and expects that her powers will easily bring happiness to the townspeople. But gaining the trust of the locals is trickier than she expected. With her faithful, wise-cracking black cat, Jiji, by her side, Kiki forges new friendships and builds her inner strength, ultimately realizing that magic can be found in even the most ordinary places.
Blending fantasy with the charm of everyday life, this enchanting new translation will inspire both new readers and dedicated fans.

Witch stories are some of my favorite things to read. They say that you read what you know, so….
I’ve seen the Studio Ghibli movie quite some time ago but I’ll always remember it. I watched it during a time in my life where I needed a pick me up and it did just that. So reading the book meant so much more to me.
I just adore Kiki’s tale. Her story is so cute and sweet. Kiki is just a wholesome character who just wants to help where needed. 🥰 This is a book that I wish I had as a kid.
Kiki’s Delivery Service is a book that I absolutely adore. I loved reading the story of her parents and learning more about the history of Witches magic. Plus Kiki and Jiji are super adorable. I just love it!!
