Waterstones Says

The latest enthralling instalment of Sparkes' The House at the Edge of Magic series finds Nine and the gang trapped in a spectacular bookshop and in need of a witch with a gift for curses.

Adventurous, magical and brilliantly funny next book in the House at the Edge of Magic series.

Nine and her friends have cured the house's hiccups and are off to the strange and utterly unpredictable Back of Beyond in search of Professor Dish - Spoon's best friend and partner in all things alchemy.

When they find Dish trapped by the greedy witch Ophidia in the basement of a particularly marvellous shop, it soon becomes clear they're going to need something more than Flabberghast's dicey magic and Nine's quick thinking to triumph this time. What they really need is a rather clever witch - one particularly good at curses...

MEDIA REVIEWS

A fabulously funny book - I loved it! Prepare to be whisked away on an adventure bursting with magical surprises, dark secrets and strawberry tea... - Lucy Strange, author of Our Castle by the Sea

Magically mischievous and sparkling with wit and charm, The Bookshop at the Back of the Beyond is an enchanting and delightful read. I absolutely adored it! - Jo Clarke, author of Libby and the Parisian Puzzle

Featured in the Bookseller children's previews for January 2023 - The Bookseller

Like Terry Pratchett or Diana Wynne Jones, Amy Sparkes has a powerfully wicked imagination; the story infused with wit, sarcasm, playfulness and characters that are threatening and shambolic while also being strangely endearing. - Chris Soul

Amy Sparkes writes with such humour and warmth, she creates the most brilliant characters. - Armadillo Magazine
