Publishers Weekly Flying Start author

A New York Public Library Book of the Teen Age 2005

Joe is on a train to visit his mother for Christmas when he gets off at the wrong stop-and his life takes a very unexpected turn. With the help of a bewitched broomstick, he is whisked to the home of the Dead-nettle Coven of witches, where he befriends Twiggy, a young witch-in-training. Joe is quickly caught up in a dramatic plan to find a famous missing page from the greatest magic book in history. The witches of England are convinced that the page has fallen into the wrong hands and that if they don't find it soon, a terrible and destructive spell may be cast over the world. With a dash of adventure, a dollop of fun, and a pinch of magic, this book is a timeless charmer.

Review:

"'Dale makes a sparkling debut with this sprightly novel introducing a 12-year-old who inadvertently becomes tangled in a web of dueling witches,' PW wrote. Ages 8-12. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
