‘Greetings, ye foul-mouthed hags and lovers of darkness!’ boomed Arriman the Awful, feared wizard of the north.
This much loved story is about a wizard called Arriman the Awful, who desperately needs a wife. Setting up a competition was very hard work so he hires a ghost and a genie for judges, which only left the witches to decide what task to do and where to do it. Only the witch with the darkest powers will win.
Meanwhile, beautiful white witch Belladonna longs to be a black witch and win the competition. But how? And will she become a black witch after all?
Age range: 8-10. I thought this was a really funny book and could not put it down at all.
