Resourceful Clover, her witchy (but benevolent) employer Mrs. Eckles, Clover's clumsy friend Wilf and, of course, Mrs. Eckles' sister, the evil Mesmeranza, are all back for another low-key adventure (Clover Twig and the Magical Cottage, 2009). Read full book review >

A stalwart young girl discovers the secrets of a benign witch's bungalow in this charming middle-grade fantasy. Read full book review >
