The second book in this sparkling, magical new series about Jessica, the ten-year-old witch-in-training. Writing that fizzes...that will enchant every 7 - 9 year old, especially girls. In Witch-in-Training: Flying Lessons ten-year-old Jessica learns the art of flying on a broomstick, using all the twigs to max effect, especially the Eject twig for getting rid of unwanted goblins. In this second title, Jessica learns Spelling and Charming under the watchful eye of Miss Strega. Jess soon learns to interpret the spellings; Grate Polish for Gnats' Spittle, Bath Plugs spell Bats' Legs and, of course, Ten-amp Plugs spell Teenage Slugs! But putting together all the ingredients to make a spell, or charm a frog are another matter and Jess makes more than a few mistakes in this second phase of her training. More fizzing fun with Jessica, Miss Strega and that lovey of the witch-world Hecate Darling...not to mention a few cats, night-in-gales and other familiars.
