The worlds of Chrestmomanci have limitless possibilities. Here is a world where witchcraft is utterly forbidden, yet where magic still seems to break out like measles – all over the place!
When a note, written in ordinary blue ballpoint, appears between two of the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset. It says:
SOMEONE IN THIS CLASS IS A WITCH
Anyone could have written it, but the most awful thing is, the note might be true for Larwood House is a school for witch-orphans! And the last thing Mr Crossley needs is a visit from the Divisional Inquisitor…
Only Chrestomanci can sort out the trouble that lies ahead!
