Product description


“…Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones’s most outrageous plots to her readers’ hopes and fears…”
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

Great Aunt Maria seems like a cuddly old lady, all chit-chat and lace doilies and unadulterated NICEness!

But when Mig and her family go for a visit, they soon learn that Aunt Maria rules Cranbury -on -Sea with a rod of sweetness that's tougher than iron and deadlier than poison. Life revolves around women's tea parties, while grey-suited men behave like zombies, and clone-like children fade into the background.

Mig is convinced that Aunt Maria must be a witch, but who will believe her? Maybe the ghost who haunts the downstairs bedroom holds the key…?
