About the Book:
After poking around in a spooky old mansion, Oliver Griffon and his friends are cursed to die on Halloween by the town witch. To remove the curse in time, they’ll need to learn a little household magic. But how? The answers come from a place called the Mysterious World.
Targeted Age Group: 10-12
The witch swept toward the hallway after them, but Oliver climbed out of the hole and brandished his shovel at her. “Hey! Over here!”
The creature’s hood turned back toward him. Then the witch leveled her wand at Oliver. She fired a white-hot burst of energy that streaked across the room, headed straight for his face.
But at the last second, Oliver got the shovel blade in front of the spell blast. The magic plowed into the blade and turned the shovel head to slag, hot and glowing like magma. The burning metal dripped onto the marble floor like ice cream melted on a hot summer day. Oliver dropped the remains of the shovel with a clatter.
The witch sped straight for him.
