All is not well in the crumbling castle high above the mountain village of Fracture. The sorceress Lady Lamorna has her heart set on a new robe. A very expensive new robe. To get the cash she will stop at nothing, including kidnapping, blackmail and more than a little black magic. But she reckons without the heroic Gracie Gillypot, not to mention a gallant if rather scruffy prince, two chatty bats, the wickedest stepsister ever, a troll with a grudge - and some very Ancient crones.

Review quote

24-carat gold. I forgot reading could be this much fun. Philip Ardagh This is a completely madcap adventure with an endearingly idiosyncratic cast of goodies, baddies and talking bats. For everyone who likes their fairy tales fast, fun and funky. Publishing News A nice fat read for young readers who enjoy fantasy fairy tales mixed with a dose of Shrek-like humour and laced with suitably inventive and crazy characters Carousel A good mix of adventure and humour. Newbury Weekly News is witty and surprisingly verbally sophisticated -- Siobhan Parkinson INIS
