Anna Kelly is a witch who’s more interested in sleepovers, school friends and soccer than practising her magic.

Then she meets Verbena Vile, a mad, bad and dangerous witch – and wishes she’d worked a bit harder on her spells!

When Verbena kidnaps Anna’s best friend Mary it’s up to Anna and her cat Charlie to rescue her … with a little help from the powerful Mrs Winkle, of course.

Will Anna’s magic be strong enough to save Mary? Can she and Charlie defeat the vile Verbena?

An entertaining and mischievous sequel to The Witch Apprentice.
