This is the fourth book about young witch Tiga Whicabim and she gains more fans with each new episode. Reunited with her long-lost mum Gretal Green, Tiga is settled in Silver City and set to live happily ever after. But Tiga always ends up at the centre of an incredible and wild adventure, and this time is no different – she needs to rescue her friend Fran from, of all things, a jelly castle. Wildly inventive and told at breakneck speed, the Witch Wars stories crackle with energy and it’s impossible to resist the appeal of Tiga, her friends and the assorted inhabitants of Sinkville. Stylish design and layout and Laura Ellen Anderson’s gorgeous illustrations make this as fun to look at as it is to read.
It's a new era for the Witch Wars witches. Felicity Bat is no longer evil, Tiga has at last found her mum and there's the whole of Silver City to explore. But it's not long before the witches find themselves at the centre of another adventure.
When a magical book called The Karens offers to grant Fran the Fabulous Fairy's dearest wish, it seems too good to be true. And it is. Before you can say 'frogknuckles', Tiga and the gang are in a race against time - can they save Fran before she explodes in a large ball of glittery dust?
