Crimson Twill is finally taking wand lessons! But is she just too different from the other little witches to succeed? A magical new adventure in this delightful series.

Crimson Twill is a unique little witch—she likes polka dots, sparkles, and sweet apples instead of rotten ones. And she finally has a real, full-length wand! Now Crimson is off to exciting New Wart City to take wand lessons with her best friends, Mauve and Wesley, and is surprised to discover that their class includes the famous young Broadwart star Miserabella Portentia! Crimson’s friends are starstruck, and for good reason: Miserabella is wickedly good at wand lessons and always seems to be in the spotlight. Meanwhile, when Crimson tries to do things the way Miserabella does, everything turns out miserable—sunbeams instead of rain, donuts instead of burned bagels, and roses instead of thorns. Disaster! But when one of Miserabella’s spells gets out of control, it might be time for Crimson to do things her way. Can Crimson learn to spotlight her full magical potential in a way that’s uniquely her own? The endearing series from Kallie George continues, charmingly illustrated by Birgitta Sif.
