Sam Harris is miserable. His mollycoddling mother won't let him out the house for fear that he might catch a chill and he has already missed the first week of school. Could life in Bellstone be more dull? But Sam's life is about to change (along with most others' too) as the Griswalds have moved in next door and their ways are far from ordinary. This is just what Bellstone needs to stir things up a bit! But, with the neighbouring Bullocks campaigning for a tidier town, the Griswalds and Sam are not without enemies. However, it will take more than this to put off the dynamic foursome and things are about to get very interesting. Praise for 'Jessica Haggerthwaite: Witch Dispatcher': 'A great read from a bright new talent' - "Guardian".show more
