More magical mayhem from the junior wizard who is always getting himself into big trouble. Here it is no exception for when he tries a Grow-bigger spell on the cauldron he finds himself in very BIG trouble indeed. Great fun reading interspersed with wonderfully humorous illustrations make this ideal for a young child to transfer from reading picture books to books with chapters.


Oliver Moon And The Spider Spell by Sue Mongredien

Oliver's mum has caught Green Flu so Oliver is in charge of all the housework. There's a lot to do - recharging the wands, washing the cloaks, not to mention looking after the Witch Baby and her pet spider! Everything is okay until Oliver tries a Grow-bigger spell on the cauldron. Then he finds himself in very BIG trouble indeed.
