First in a new, highly illustrated chapter book series for ages 5-7, this book is set in Miracula and features Ivy, an unstoppable and lovable young witch, and her friend and familiar Tom.

Ivy's parents, the King and Queen of the Sand Witches, have prepared her a show-stopping birthday present - a magic act where they disappear! But hold on, they really have disappeared! Foul work is at play, and to rescue Ivy's parents, she and Tom must travel all over Miracula on broomsticks and flying carpets, making friends along the way, and pulling together to defeat Clawdelia Thorn, evil Queen of Grotland.

Good old-fashioned fun and adventure, accompanied by lots of magic and silly names, sit alongside themes of justice and helping each other. There are wonderful black and white illustrations throughout from an artist whose work has previous work has been praised:

'Vigorous, comical, eventful pictures' Sunday Times

'Hilarious and gorgeously illustrated' STORYTIME MAGAZINE
