The Only Thing Worse Than Witches by Lauren Magaziner

There are witches in eleven-year-old Rupert’s modern world, real witches with cauldrons and spells. They are all dangerous, according to his mother. She warns him to stay away, so of course, he ignores her. What else is the poor boy to do? He is desperate for an adventure to take his mind off his terrible teacher, Mrs. Frabbleknacker. She could put any witch to shame. But then perhaps that might be because she is a witch or is she?

When Rupert answers an ad looking for a witch’s assistant he gets the job helping a witch in training prepare for her witch-qualifying exam. She’s about his age and needs all the help she can get. Her spells go horribly wrong. But mostly she needs a friend. Alone neither of the children have what it takes to solve their problems, but together they can do almost anything, including uncover some deep dark secrets about why the witches came to town, who Mrs. Frabbleknacker really is and why Rupert’s mother is so desperate for him to stay away from witches.

Charming and whimsical, The Only Thing Worse Than Witches is a fun, timeless story of the magic of friendship. It is a must-read.
