A wild comic fantasy from a master of the supernatural. If you like the Harry Potter books, this one's for you.
There are good witches and bad witches, but the law says that all witches must be burned at the stake, so when an anonymous note warns, "Someone in this class is a witch,: the students in 6B are justifyibly nervous--especially the boy who's just discovered that he can cast spells and the girl who was naved after the most famous witch of all.
WITCH WEEK features the debonair enchanter Chrestomanci, who also appears in CHARMED LIFE, THE MAGICIANS OF CAPRONA and THE LIVES OF CHRISTOPHER CHANT.
A cute, fast-paced story with surprisingly "adult" themes of persecution and subversion, cloaked in child-friendly plotlines. It is suitable for children though, and has many genuinely funny moments. Recommended for both adults and children who like the Potter series and the "Hidden" series by Haddix.
