Overview

Abby is an eleven year-old Hopplescotch, the twin to the gate of the gateway that leads to Hopplescotch Realm. Muriel, a Hopplescotch witcherene, is the keeper of the gate and one of the most powerful witches in this world and the seven realms.
Abby has been sent to Muriel as a decoy. The peace and quiet of Beechhorn cove is about to be shattered by the re-emergence of Agnes Fairwether, another Hopplescotch witcherene who had tried to overthrow this world ten years before.
It appears a switchelstick may have been used on Muriel and Agnes in their last battle.
Who is who? Is the gateway safe?
Abby and her new friends seek to unravel the mystery.
They are plunged into adventures with many odd characters from the realms, while trying to save the realms from the evil Agnes.

New author Julie Folkers has created a warm and engaging tale that will be enjoyed by all young readers.
Her colourful and imaginative characters really come alive, and the pace of the story draws the reader in, always wanting to find out what happens next. I found it hard to put down, and recommend it to any parent aiming to grow their child's love of reading.

A wonderfully imaginative and creative story. It is not often I find a book that my twelve-year-old son, my nine-year-old daughter and myself are all completely engrossed in from start to finish. Highly recommended for children, young adults and adults who are children at heart.
Cheryl Thomas

It is such a good book that every kid should read it, it is just so interesting. I would recommend that every school have this book and every library should have it too.
