Staff Reviews

'...but if any of you are wondering whether Mrs. Winter is quite all right again now, the answer is NO.  And she never will be.'

Yup, that's the problem with having a magic finger that can zap your enemies.  Sometimes you zap them and well, they stay zapped.  But don't worry, you will probably laugh pretty hard when you get a load of what happened to Mrs. Winter.  And if you like water fowl, read this.  Now.  Today.

— From Sarah


From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG comes the story of a young girl with an incredible power

To the Gregg family, hunting is just plain fun. To the girl who lives next door, it's just plain horrible. She tries to be polite. She tries to talk them out of it, but the Greggs only laugh at her. Then one day the Greggs go too far, and the little girl turns her Magic Finger on them. When she's very, very angry, the little girl's Magic Finger takes over. She really can't control it, and now it's turned the Greggs into birds Before they know it, the Greggs are living in a nest, and that's just the beginning of their problems....
