‘Begone the Raggedy Witches’ by Celine Kiernan

This is the first of ‘The Wild Magic’ trilogy.

As a result of her father being kidnapped by witches, Mup (and her mother, dog, brother and the ghost of Aunty Boo !) set out to fetch him back. The world they enter is a dangerous one that is ruled by a tyrannical queen using spies and informers – the raggedy witches – to enforce her cruel rules.  The story bristles with excitement and adventure.

Nine year old Annabelle (a reviewer on the excellent website www.lovereading4kids.co.uk) says: ‘This book is a magical thrilling ride – not letting you settle as you always want to know what’s coming next.’
