How would you spot a witch or a wizard? And how exactly would you describe one? Do they all wear pointy hats, use wands and sporty pointy beards (and that's just the witches)? Or are they more difficult to detect? Are they simply misguided hippies or do they really exist?
Make up your own mind as you read about London s witching times, including stories about: the real Philosopher's Stone; Elizabeth I's favourite wizard; the witch-hunting craze that swept Britain; and how being a lonely old lady with a fondness for pets could be your undoing.
You might even come across some handy tips, such as: how to organize a small army of assassin snails; how to make the most disgusting cake in the world (it s a lurve cake); and unusual uses for toad poo.
Enter this bizarre world of witchcraft, superstition and persecution and keep your pets safe!
