Synopsis

Trixie Gets the Witch Factor by Ros Asquith

Trixie explores her witchy genes (inherited through seventeen generations) at a school for witches, which is Very Extremely NOT Hogwarts! Trixie can't believe her luck when she's invited to attend a half-term taster course in witchcraft and Wizardry at Conundrums Academy. But her witchy prowess and her inventiveness are tested to the full by the Very Extremely peculiar rules and punishments, and the generally strange goings-on. Trixie is also on a secret mission to find a Long Lost Family Heirloom rumoured to be somewhere in the school. And if anything goes wrong - the Evil Force will mince her! More hilarity and spellbinding fun with everybody's bestest friend!
