The Apprentice Witch - The Apprentice Witch (Paperback)James Nicol (author)
Studio Ghibli meets Diana Wynne Jones in the first spellbinding
APPRENTICE WITCH book!
'Reminded me of the best of the Worst Witch books'
'A charming tale of magic, bravery and friendship, reminiscent
of Diana Wynne Jones.' GUARDIAN
'The Apprentice Witch is entirely
more charming, adventurous, and full of heart than a book has any
right to be.' TRENTON LEE STEWART
'A delightful, witty and vivid story' KIRAN MILLWOOD
Arianwyn fluffs her witch’s assessment. Awarded the dull
bronze disc of an apprentice – to the glee of her arch-rival,
Gimma – she’s sent to protect the remote, dreary
town of Lull.
But her new life is far from boring. Turns out Gimma is the pompous
mayor’s favourite niece – and worse, she opens
a magical rift in the nearby forest.
As Arianwyn struggles with her spells, it’s soon clear there’s
much more than her pride at stake …
A bewitching debut set in a world of domestic magic –
a refreshingly small-world fantasy perfect for readers aged
9 and up.
A spellbinding read, tapping into important themes of
overcoming failure and building self-esteem.
Filled with thrills, pesky magical conundrums, outlandish
creatures and an enchanted forest, yet retains its warm soul
and earthy charm!
