From the Back Cover
Gertie Grimthorpe comes from a long line of witches. Unfortunately, she hasn't really got the hang of it. Being blonde haired, blue eyed and free of warts isn't much of an advantage.
Try as she might, Gertie's spells fall flat. She manages to give her bat-headed umbrella the ability to talk, but then wishes she hadn't when all he does is complain and insult people. Even finding an owl to be her Familiar doesn't help. Then again, he is extremely shortsighted...
Gertie is sent to The Academy to improve her spell casting skills. She soon has a best friend in the form of Bertha Bobbit, a big girl, with a matching appetite.
Add to that a Moat Monster with a flatulence problem, the weirdest array of witch's Familiars possible, and a warlock determined to ruin Gertie's chances of success, and the story unfolds.
Not to mention the demon...

Gertie is sent off to the witch's academy, in the hope that it will help, as her mother and grandmother are some what concerned she is having a problem with her spells. Gertie is a bright shining girl, wart free and clear skinned, blonde nothing like a witch, we see her make her way through the week's making friend's with a monster and heal his sore tummy.
Lot's of laughter and fun ensue, Gertie is an entertaning few hour's and we hope she has more spell's to cast.
I can say that once I started to read this book I couldn't stop reading until the end.
Don't just take my word for it, buy your copy now.
