Lucy Newton, Little Witch
Written and illustrated by Phoebe McArthur
Lucy’s mum is always busy, going to this meeting and that, leaving Lucy alone in their old house with one strict rule: NO MAGIC.
Lucy doesn’t mean to conjure the giant green slug. She only wanted a friendly kitten to keep her company.
Now, with the help of a talking spellbook and a grumpy cat called Thomas, she must race to get rid of the slug before it eats the prized cabbage garden of the witch next door — and before her mum gets home.
A lively, entertaining story for young readers.
