Jessica is learning the Witch Switch – how to magically change shape. But although being a cat can be great fun, it’s also a tiny bit scary. What happens if a Witch Switch goes wrong? Meanwhile, what happens if an Ordinary Person finds out about the goings-on at Miss Strega’s shop?
Jessica is off to the Extraordinary Moonlight Games at Coven Garden, which take place every year on the Night of the Blue Moon. She is there to compete with three other witches-in-training in the Witch-in-Training Championship Hurdles, but she soon discovers that her rivals are in it to win at any cost – fair play or foul.
