One of our Books of the Year 2015 - September 2015 Book of the Month This second adventure for witchkid Flo Skritchett is likely to prove as popular as the first. A huge part of the fun of the stories is the parallel witch society Emma Fischel has created: parents will envy Flo’s mum’s witchwasher – the witch washing machine – while young readers will long for a skychatter, so much more stylish than a mobile phone. The other fun thing about magical worlds is that they offer so many more chances for children to be heroic, and that’s the case here too. Having already seen off an invasion of ghouls, albeit with the help of her highly eccentric granny and other Skritchett family members, now Flo has to face the terrifying Haggfiend, and virtually single handed – save for a gang of loyal trolls and her best friends. It’s impossible not to get caught up in the story, and the book fairly crackles with energy, excitement and humour too. ~ Andrea Reece
Kirsty from Nosy Crow says: “Shiveringly exciting and with such a great voice – Emma plays beautifully with the witch genre and the results are spelltastic"
The brilliant sequel to Witchworld finds Flo pitched into battle with another dire creature thought to be extinct - the terrible Haggfiend! Armed only with Old Magic, can Flo stop the dreadful threat to Witchworld? Her batty old grandma thinks she can, and so battle commences...
Another funny, excitingly witchy story for 9+ readers; it's impossible not to fall under its spell, especially with Chris Riddell's bewitching cover and incidental illustration.
