Poppy and Amelia didn’t set out to be witches. That happened quite by accident, and it’s a secret they must keep from their family and friends. Then there is Mia, the new girl in class. Pale, strange and deadly serious, she’s in need of a couple of equally weird friends. Poppy and Amelia are happy to oblige. Together, the three of them must thwart the plans of the sinister Miss Mortimer and her evil companions.
The Awesome Adventures of Poppy and Amelia is an awesome read indeed!
I have thoroughly enjoyed being swept along with Poppy and Amelia as they get to grips with becoming new witches. It’s all very exciting but isn’t without its dangers too, especially where Miss Mortimer is concerned.
Poppy and Amelia embrace their new responsibilities with courage and intelligence. They have lots of fun exploring their new powers and making memories with their new friend, and classmate, Mia. I enjoyed the friendship they develop. We don’t have to be the same as each other to be good friends and we have to stick together when it matters the most. These girls certainly do that.
This book is full of magic (in more ways than one), adventure, friendship, and fabulous characters who I look forward to meeting again sometime (hopefully).
I am 43 and I loved this story. I’m sure you would too, however old you are. If you have school aged children/grandchildren/nieces/nephews…. they will love it too. Why not buy a copy and read together? Or maybe gift a copy (or two). All profits from the sale of this gorgeous book go towards Leukaemia Research in memory of Posy Miller (Misha’s daughter and Maddy’s Aunt).
