Publisher's Summary

When Joe is traveling to stay with his mother and stepfather for Christmas, little does he imagine the excitement and magical intrigue that await him when he falls headfirst into an evil plot to rid England of witches. With great bravery and more than a little help from his half sister, Esme, and a new friend, Twiggy, he has to muster all his courage and ingenuity to solve the riddles surrounding him and save his newfound friends. A fabulously detailed and richly exciting adventure story that grips the listener in its magical clutches from the very beginning.

Whispering to Witches

A wonderful story - not too heavy - just right for listening by the fire while I knit :)

Fun story

This book felt a bit like The Wizard if Oz mixed with Harry Potter. It’s a delightful story with good characters, fun plot twists, and an enjoyable narrative. Good for kids, and adults who enjoy children’s literature. A reader can make or break an audiobook, and I found John Curless to do a top job.
