Diary of an Accidental Witch: Flying High


Diary of an Accidental Witch: Flying High is a brilliant addition to this laugh out loud series.


Bea Black is ready for another term at The Spellshire School for Extraordinary Arts, especially as this one promises to be packed with one of her favourite things - sport. But when a cake fight in the local tearoom brings inter-school tensions to boiling point, it's decided that this year's Winter Solstice tournament will be played with a non-magical twist. Can Bea stop her two world from colliding, win gold and keep all of her friends happy?


In the first book, Bea struggles to make friends at her new school, where she feels like a constant outsider. In Flying High she has a hard time keeping all of her new friends happy - especially since ordinary and extraordinary students don't mix.


We loved book one so much that we bought extra copies as gifts. This series is perfect for seven year olds and up who are fans of magic, mayhem and lots of laughs.


We loved the competitiveness in this book. Even the teachers are desperate to win at all costs, with some hilarious consequences, like egg and spoon races on broom sticks where the eggs hatch mid way through, and speed potions that don't wear off for the rest of the day.


Katie Saunders' illustrations bring extra charm and magic to this brilliant story. The layout is also really clever, with lots of lists and crossed out words, so it feels like a real diary.


This series is so much fun and I can't wait to see where it goes next.


Thank you Little Tiger for sending us a copy to review.
