Rupert Campbell is fascinated by the witches who live nearby. He dreams of broomstick tours and souvenir potions, but the closest he can get to a witchy experience is sitting in class with his awful teacher Mrs. Frabbleknacker. So when he sees an ad to become a witch's apprentice, Rupert simply can't resist applying. But Witchling Two needs all the help she can get to pass her exams and become a full fledged witch. She's determined to help Rupert stand up to the dreadful Mrs. Frabbleknacker too, but the witchling's magic will be as useful as a clump of seaweed unless Rupert can figure out a way to help her improve her spellcasting - and fast!

MEDIA REVIEWS
* "Fifth-grader Rupert Campbell lives in a world that combines Roald Dahl's Witches and Louis Sachar's Wayside School. Readers will banish themselves from the ordinary world to finish this book in a flash." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A fun, frothy story that will, well, charm its readers."--Publishers Weekly

"Ideal for middle-grade readers who love Roald Dahl's Matilda and enjoy humor with their fantasy, this debut novel is madcap and fantastical. It's the perfect thing for kids not quite ready for Diane Duane or Madeleine L'Engle." --Booklist

"Eva Ibbotson fans will appreciate the quirky humor." --BCCB

"A hilarious, light-hearted debut!" --Library Media Connection
