SETTING The canyons, lined with palm trees, hibiscus, bougainvillea and a row of candles lit for the two old ladies. The two old ladies had been killed by a hit–and-run, at the Hollywood sign. The setting is important because it sets the tone for the reader. It lets the reader know what to except. The book would have started off happier if the setting was different(two old ladies hit and run).

POINT OF VIEW Francesca Lia Block wrote the book in second person. She did not say “I” all the time in the book. She is entertaining you. She tried to entertain you by saying that Witch Baby can’t get out of the shed. She wanted us to keep on reading to fine out if Witch Baby would come out of the shed.
SYMBOLISM HAPPY Because after they get Witch Baby out of the shed they have a band called the Goat Guys.
RECOMMENDATION I would not recommend Cherokee bat and the Goat Guys because it was not interesting. The cover look good to read, but it was not good at all. That is my recommend about this book.
