Cauldron Spells by C J Busby and Illustrated by David Wyatt

Age range: 7 to 11

'If Adolphus the dragon had not fallen through the trapdoor and landed head first in Max's cauldron, then the cauldron would not have ended up severely bent out of shape, and maybe Max's spells wouldn't have gone quite so spectacularly wrong. He certainly wouldn't have needed to go looking for a new cauldron, and that was what saved them all.'

Cauldron Spells is the second book in CJ Busby's Spell Series, and it continues the adventures of Max Pendragon and his sister Olivia. Max is not looking forward to attending Morgana Le Fay's summer Spell School. Not only is his battered cauldron producing slimy sludge instead of perfect spells, but ever since he and his sister Olivia foiled evil Morgana's plot against King Arthur, they have been wary of her plans for revenge.

Max and Olivia soon discover that Spell School has more in store for them than they ever imagined. With the help of Merlin and a mysterious bard, Caradoc, will they be able to outwit Morgana and save Arthur for a second time?

“Packed with magical mishaps, exciting quests and lots of humour.”

"Like all the best fantasies, it's far-fetched and furiously funny."
