|From The Publisher*||Evie wants to be scared, but she'll get more than she bargained for in this thrilling, witchy chapter book adventure! For fans of Sir Simon: Super Scarer and other spooky, kid-friendly books.|
Evie wants to be scared, and the usual scary stories just aren't doing it for her anymore. When she stumbles across a different sort of book, The Truth about Witches, she hopes she's found something thrilling . . . but she's forbidden by a kindly shopkeeper from reading the last page out loud! Naturally, her curiosity gets the better of her, and upon reading the last page out loud -- a real summoning spell -- Evie is spirited off to a strange land of magic, weird creatures, feasts and actual witches! They're not as scary as they seem, until Evie asks to join their ranks . . . and only once she does is her quest for true scariness satisfied . . .
