Meet Pinch Perkins, star of a sparkling new fantasy series. Pinch lives in a pocket of magic on the edge of the ordinary world. There are more grown-ups there than children but when her mum is cursed and put into an unwakeable sleep, Pinch feels it’s down to her to find out who is responsible and how to lift the curse.

With the initially reluctant help of her frenemy Henry, she tracks down clues in other magic enclaves, putting both of them in real danger. The finger seems to point to a wicked witch, Lizzy Creak, but worse, indicates that Pinch only has until midsummer night to save her mum.

The action is non-stop with Pinch and Henry helped by hedgehogs, a fairiy, the (also cursed) knights of the round table and even a London cab driver but Lizzy Creak is ruthless and much closer to home than Pinch realises. Brimming with imagination and with a really sparky, memorable protagonist this is a great read for young fans of magical adventures.
