All Prunella wants is to be a proper bog-witch. Unfortunately, her curses tend to do more good than harm. When her mixed-up magic allows a sneaky thief to escape her grandmother's garden, Prunella is cast out until she can prove herself.It's hard enough being exiled to the unmagical Uplands, but traveling with the smug young thief Barnaby is even worse. He's determined to gain fame and fortune by recovering the missing Mirable Chalice. And to get what she wants, Prunella must help him, like it or not.

Our customer reviews

Prunella wants to be a proper bog-witch, but her curses end up helping instead of harming. Her inability to curse allows a thief, Barnaby, to escape from her grandmother\'s garden and gets Prunella banished until she can do a proper curse. Barnaby is on a quest to gain fame and fortune by finding the Mirable Chalice and returning it to the queen. Now, Prunella must team up with the very thief who got her kicked out of her bog if she hopes to prove herself and return to her family, but helping Barnaby find the chalice might prove more dangerous than she thought. A tale worthy of sharing! With Fagan\'s combination of a bog-witch and a thief as unlikely heroes, THE MAGICAL MISADVENTURES OF PRUNELLA BOGTHISTLE is a brilliant tale of discovery and acceptance sure to entertain readers for years to come. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
