Oliver Moon and the spider spell

Oliver's mum has caught green flu, so Oliver is in charge of the housework. There's a lot to do - recharging the wands, washing the cloaks, not to mention looking after the Witch Baby and her pet spider! Everything is okay until Oliver tries a Grow-bigger spell on the cauldron. Then he finds himself in very BIG trouble indeed ...

Packed full of gruesome detail and great fun this is the latest exciting instalment in the Oliver Moon series. This book is a great light-hearted and fun read, perfect for those children who are too young for Harry Potter but who want to immerse themselves in the world of magic and wizardry. At the same time the subtle messages teach important lessons and the illustrations make it ideally suited for children from age 5-8 to enjoy reading.
More magical mayhem from the junior wizard who is always getting himself into big trouble. Here it is no exception for when he tries a Grow-bigger spell on the cauldron he finds himself in very BIG trouble indeed. Great fun reading interspersed with wonderfully humorous illustrations make this ideal for a young child to transfer from reading picture books to books with chapters.
Love reading 4 kids

You were brave!
Hi I’ve only read one of your books. I thought you were brave when you gave the tablet to the spider. My mum’s ordered more of your books.

I love Oliver Moon because he's great at magic even if it doesn't always go right. He gets to eat really unusual things like minced eyes and I think I would prefer to eat mince pies My favourite book so far is the Spider Spell although I wouldn't like to see a spider that big.
