Witch for a Week competition

OUT NOW!

When Elsie Pickles offers to house-sit the mysterious home of local witch Magenta Sharp, she isn’t quite sure what she’s got herself into. But not to worry –  left with a talking raven and a scruffy dog for company, a magical tower that has a mind of its own and an instruction book called Everything You Need to Know, what could possibly go wrong? Hmmmm…a lot, actually!

Witch for a Week

With a host of weird and wonderful neighbours banging at the door, and a box of magical ingredients that must be used immediately, Elsie finds out that looking after Magenta’s home might not be so easy, after all. Does she have what it takes to be a witch for a week or will it all end in disaster?!
