Midden’s team of helpers in the Magic Factory in Starling Castle are an unusual crew. There’s a Gargoyle, a Bogle, a Shape Shifter and, not to be forgotten, a cat. Together they have some magical adventures trying to warm up the prince of winter, calm a cross dragon and undo a dancing spell. And all of it before midnight. Simple and wholly satisfying magic.


Magic Factory (Cold Spell) by Theresa Breslin

Midden the Messy Witch and her team of helpers run the famous magic factory in Starling Castle. All sorts of people pop in to buy spell ingredients, or for cauldron, broomstick and wand repairs. The King and Queen of Winter have a problem - their son, Prince Icicle, doesn't like the cold. Can Midden help, or will winter have to be warmed up?
