The Lovereading4Kids comment

The third and much anticipated final instalment in the highly-praised Witches at War! series. Hilarious fun for children aged 8+ and brilliant for parents and children to read together. There are stunning illustrations throughout in this beautifully produced small hardback edition.


Witches at War!: The Wild Winter by Martin Howard

As you'll recall, the previous book in the series ended with a shocking revelation. Now, Sam and her mentor, the incompetent and rude but strangely likeable Esmelia Sniff, have been separated and evil is beginning to dominate the world. It's the longest, coldest winter since records began and the newspapers are reporting sightings of strange and evil creatures making their way towards the Bleak Fortress. Inside the fortress Sam is a prisoner to Diabolica's evil plans while her friend, the potion expert Helza Poppin, is trapped in the dungeon and scheduled for torture. Things ain't looking good.

Other titles in the Witches at War! series include The Wickedest Witchand The White Wand.


Seriously funny. . . . grotesque illustrations add to the fun. -- Guardian on Wickedest Witch

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
