I liked this book quite a lot. In this book are 4 different stories. One of the stories I personaly liked was called ‘Spooky Winnie’. it is when Winnie the Witch and Wilbur the Cat, get invited to a haloween party. Winnie makes a disgusting dish to take with her. She also made a bat bunting decoration. Do you want to know what her outfit was for the party? Do you want to know what the ther stories were about? Read the book.
This book is a combination of excitement and suspense. This book has a plot that is easy to understand. The author made some creative characters, for example, the author has introduced flying monkeys and other creatures to the story. This is a perfect book for a 7-year-old. The Wizard of Oz is the best book for avid readers.
This is a very exciting book that varies from magic animals, known as farmiliars, to demon hunters. When you read it, you almost want to be sucked right into the book! I reccomend this book for 10 years and older.

Colin and Susan were pursued over the Alderly moor by mythical monsters. They were saved by a wizard with the strange name of Cadelin Silverbrow. Cadelin Silverbrow watches over 140 sleeping knights who will wake up and defeat evil. But Cadelin Silverbrow has lost the weirdstone of Brisingamen which stops the knights from ageing. Will they find the weirdstone of Brisingamen? I rate this 5 stars because it is gripping and exciting. I think children 9+ should read this book.
