A girl’s clever sewing saves her from a magician,
a groom almost misses his own wedding,
a grandmother leaves her granddaughter an unusual quest.

*this book isn’t written for kids, but apart from some mild swearing and some scary moments, I think it’s kid-kosher. If you’re unsure, please read it yourself before sharing with the kids in your life. It’s certainly no scarier than most of my beloved books by Roald Dahl!
