One day, spunky, 13-year-old, motherless spelunker Jane Riggs, newly installed by her widowed geologist father in Bosky Glen (Mrs. Babcock's historic Massachusetts house near the wild countryside), rappels herself into an under-the-knoll witch's kitchen and finds the 400-year-old grimoire, a Wiccan training manual, of Hyssop Joan (a white witch Puritan villagers had tormented into going black). With digital appearances of Hyssop Joan via Jane's laptop and of Joan's familiar, Jeoffry, now using the body of Mrs. Babcock's white Manx cat, Jane sets off to contact her dead mother and defeat Trick E, an evil spirit fox who hates all environment-destroying humanity.
