Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 June 2017  – Fun and Unique” A unique magical and modern story about an eccentric loveable dizzy witch and her 2 best friends with the added bonus of a delicious recipe at the end! Super illustrations which tell the story so well . Can’t wait for the next book in the series.





Miss Pickle’s Royal Surprise

When Miss Pickle receives a tea party invitation from Queen Ethel, she is far too excited to wait for the magic washer to be fixed before spinning spells. No wonder the magic doesn’t go according to plan!  But Miss Pickle decides to fly to the party in the bikini she magicked up instead of a dress and takes soggy jam tarts as a surprise for the Queen.  So why does Queen Ethel think this is the best tea party ever?

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 December 2018 – “Fun witch story with lots of surprises!” Loved this second instalment of the Miss Pickle series!  Miss Pickle is back to her dizzy spell-making, and the spells are still backfiring with hilarious results. With vibrant drawings, that further enhance the humour in the book.”




Miss Pickle in Space

When Miss Pickle, Nutmeg and Pepper zoom into space they get more twirly, whirly fun than they bargained for, but be prepared for trouble with smashing METEOROIDS, cosmic BLACK HOLES, and gigantic SPACE JUNK MOUNTAINS! How will Miss Pickle find a safe way home again?
