Castle Hangnail - Ursula Vernon

Author of the popular Dragonbreath series, Ursula Vernon romps into the world of witchcraft and magic spells in her latest work. Castle Hangnail (Dial, $16.99) is doomed if the Board of Magic decommissions it. The minions of the castle have long searched for a master to oversee dark and evil duties. When twelve-year-old Molly arrives, dressed in black and wearing very serious boots, the residents of the castle are simultaneously doubtful and hopeful that she is the wicked witch they need. Filled with humor, a brave protagonist, an unusual cast of endearing characters, and enchanting illustrations, this is a most magical treasure. Ages 9-12
