Tom is in shock. He’s just found out that he’s not fully human, and that his dad is an escaped fairy on the run. It seems that Tom is a demisprite – the child of a fairy and a human – and that he has dangerous enemies he never even knew about. Now he must trust his life to his three fairy godmothers, who have been summoned to protect him. But their magic is dangerous, they can’t stop bickering, and two of them are hardened criminals. Will Tom survive their botched spells and learn to fly, so he can enter the perilous Fairy Realm and save his parents? A laugh-out-loud magical caper from the bestselling author of Beswitched.

Praise for Beswitched:

“Magic… time travel… a funny and touching story… This book has it all!” Eva Ibbotson

“It was a joy to read from cover to cover. Exciting, inventive with a very pleasing twist.” Philip Ardargh

    Magicalamity was a good book, if it was a series it would be good enough for Harry Potter, I give it 4.6 stars because some books can be better however this was a fun read!!
