Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan
Review by Sine
Mup, a normal girl, is driving home from seeing her ill aunty when a strange sight greets her. In the trees are what looks like witches. She thinks she is safe but the witches come to take her Mam away to the sparkling kingdom. Luckily Mup, Badger the dog and the ghost of her aunty manage to get her back. When they think the danger is gone they hear on the radio that Mup's father has disappeared.They all knew he had been taken to the sparkling kingdom. Reluctantly, Aunty follows Mup, Mam,Tipper (Mup's baby brother) and Badger over the border where they meet Crow, a rhyming raven who can turn into a boy, who follows them on their mission to save Mup’s father. Mup and her rather large group meet lots of new people as they travel around the sparkling kingdom to save Mup’s Dad.
I enjoyed this magical adventure story as you never knew what would happen next.
