A story for children

I have fond memories of listening to this book as a child. Prunella Scales has a wonderfully expressive voice which gave the characters life. I was feeling nostalgic one day and got it into my head to listen to this again. It was just like I remembered, Belladonna the White witch, Aramond the Wizard, Terrance and rover and the black witches warts and all!

One of my favourites

Eva Ibbotson creates characters who are engaging and believable despite being witches, wizards and ghouls! One of my favourite stories, love listening to it whilst doing other boring things like tidying up!

The right side of spooky

I downloaded this book for Halloween listening for my 6 and 4 yr old boys - crossing my fingers that it wouldn't be too "girly" (as it's essentially about the search for love) or too scarey.



In fact this book is fantastic. Yes it does have lots of atmospheric descriptions of devilish mazes, hedges dripping blood and unpleasant familiars, but it's done in such a matter-of-fact way to seem normal for those characters. No nightmares from either of my boys. Even when some of the spells go wrong, they were gripped rather than scared.
