Description

It is spring-cleaning time and Pongwiffy is out of sorts. Hugo her Hamster Familiar and her Broom are insisting on clearing out her lovely, dirty hovel and making it spick and span - and she hates it. But there is one silver lining: as a result of all the tidying up, Pongwiffy unearths Granny Malodour's amazing recipe for Wishing Water - a traditional spell that actually works! But the ingredients are quite unusual and very hard to come by, and Pongwiffy is soon in a spot of bother A laugh-out-loud story that is witty and clever, enticingly mixed in with much sludge, slime and very bad habits.show more
