Gertie Grimthorpe is a young witch who is born from a long line of witches. Unfortunately, she hasn't really got the hang of it yet. Being born blonde-haired and blue-eyed, with not a wart to be seen anywhere, is not easy for a witch. Try as she might, Gertie finds her best efforts in trying to cast spells all seem to fall flat. She does manage to give her bat-headed umbrella the ability to talk, but wishes she hadn't when all he does is complain and insult people. Throw in an owl for a familiar who is unfortunately short-sighted and a Moat Monster with a flatulence problem and you find loads of fun that will keep you and your child entertained for hours.
Follow Gertie as she is sent to The Academy to improve her spell casting abilities. Meet her new friend Bertha Bobbit, a big girl with a matching appetite, and the weirdest array of witch's familiars possible. Not to mention a demon. I know you'll enjoy this as much as I did.
I highly promote this book to all readers.
