Mup is a little bo with a rabbit hat and frog wellies, who lives in th house by the woods with her mam, her little brother Tipper and an elderly Labrador called Badger.

They have come for her mam, to bring her back to this world of the witches where she was born and where Mup 's grandmother is Queen.

When mam refuses to go, they kidnap Mup 's dad instead, a human an with no nowledge of the magi world.

What I iked most though was how Mup 's bravery is inextricable from her sense of humility and of right and wrong, and how she battles to keep her family and friends safe and together even when she herself feels abandoned.

Her great-aunt has just died, and the raggedy witches want to seize Mup ’ s mother Stella, who is the eir to throne in a agical land that presses close against our own.

There was no taint or tincture of them to the night, no trace of them in light or shadow. ’ The ghost of her great-aunt saves Mup ’ s stepmother, although she is ‘ nothing but a silver outline … filled in with the night. ’ The witches then kidnap Mup ’ s cousin, to set a trap for Stella.

I do n't read to many middle grade books, but I dislike it was light and airy with plenty of kids friendly humor.
