Book Description

On the eve of her ninth birthday Molly Miggins visits the funfair where her parents are due to perform a live magic show. Molly's mum is a High Witch and her father is a stage magician who uses real magic.
During the performance the disappearing trick goes badly wrong and both of Molly's parents vanish. Molly meets a wizard who tells her that only she can rescue them.
To succeed in her quest Molly must become a junior witch and try to find a way into the mysterious 'void' where her parents have been trapped. At the witches academy Molly is given an ancient, damaged wand called, Wonky, but because of a slight twist in the wand Molly finds it almost impossible to aim a spell accurately. Can Molly master the wand and rescue her parents before the wizard’s deadline or will the nasty tricks and traps he has placed in her way prevent her from fulfilling her quest?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Molly's Magic Maze 4 Oct. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Magic Molly's adventures start in the fairground, where she enters the Magic Maze, in search of The Void, where she aims to put her knowledge of spells to good use, to free her parents.
    With a magician for a dad and a High Witch for a mum, you'd have thought her life would have been plain sailing and that she could get her wishes with the waft of a wand, but not so. Molly, despite being granted special privileges a year ahead of time, still has a lot of magic work ahead and a lot of using her clever little brain to work things out in order to fulfil her quest. Magic Molly's companion, Wonky the wand, may not be the perfect partner at first sight, but Magic Molly and Wonky are made for one another. Molly is a good little witch, and read on for some surprises. Wonky wands are not all that they seem.
    Another excellent tale from Trevor Forest. This tale is on par with Roald Dahl in my opinion, so keep turning out those tales, Trevor!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book! 24 April 2012

    I really enjoyed this book. I think my favourite character is Granny Whitewand. What I liked about it:
    I love the story and how it is set. I love Molly because she has cool magic powers. But most of all, I love Granny Whitewand because she is very funny and she has wobbly teeth.
    I think it is going to be my favourite book.

    The artwork on the jacket makes you want to open the book - then once inside, there's no going back, you're hooked! Yet another great book from a writer who can enthral children of all ages 8 through 80+. Molly Miggins is a likeable witch who uses her skills wisely and with the teaching from her parents and `support' of her trusted companion, Wonky, share magic moments with their readers. The story pulls the reader in, so you feel part of the story, a close observer.

    This book is not limited to children, and definitely delivers a feel-good read for older readers. Everyone deserves a little magic, and Trevor shares it in his children's books. He has a way with words, and I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A magic little book 29 Aug. 2012
    By nanjar
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Magic Molly 1-The Mirror Maze is a fun read for kids with elements of the classics that, in my opinion, need to be kept alive. I loved the fact that Molly's parents aren't the most fabulously successful witch/wizard ever, and that they have had a little hitch that has sent them to the void, giving Molly a nice little problem to solve. That they earn their living at the fairground is a great setting - the magic of the fairground less common these days in my part of the UK. Granny Whitewand is a witch I'd definitely love to meet. She's funny, a bit dithery, but I think just might have hidden moments in the next books in the series which I'll be reading very soon. Trevor Forest has a knack of finding the most perfect words to use to excite the imagination and spark the humour of the reader, young and old. Wonky wand looks like the perfect companion for a fledgling witch like Molly! A great book for middle primary ages.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Indeed 29 Jun. 2014
    By AnnW
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    On the surface Molly is like any other soon-to-be-nine year old, going to school, having friends (and enemies) and living an uneventful life. But Molly's family life is far from ordinary and leads to this, the first of her adventures as a young witch.
    Molly has to face a series of challenges unaided when her parents, a High Witch and a magician, disappear when a trick goes wrong on the eve of her ninth birthday. True she has a grandmother, whose magic can have unpredictable results, to point her on her way and she does acquire a wand of her own, albeit one that has seen better days and requires special skill to overcome his "Wonky" shape.
    As in the best quest stories each achievement is met by a further setback and it seems that Molly is set to fail in her endeavours to find her parents, now lost in the Void, before the deadline but Molly' perseverance and eventual mastery of Wonky stand her in good stead. Just what those challenges are and how Molly deals with them are things you will have to find out for yourself. No doubt you will find yourself looking out for the next adventure very soon.
    Magic Molly and the Mirror Maze is one of those tales that is timeless, appealing to adults as well as children making it ideal for the child to read alone or to be shared as a bedtime story.
