The sweets Madame Bonbon gives Madeleine have the most bewitching effect, at first making her feel much stronger and able to confront Mirabelle. However, soon they start drawing her into a strange, enchanted world from which she finds she cannot escape. Madame Bonbon is really someone else in disguise - an old enemy from Madame Pamplemousses past, who has come to Paris seeking her revenge . . .

Meet the Author

Rupert Kingfishers first two books, Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles and Madame Pamplemousse and the Time-Travelling Café, were highly acclaimed. His favourite authors as a child were Roald Dahl, Susan Cooper and Ursula le Guin. He also loved American horror comics and French cartoon books such as Asterix and Tintin. It was on a family holiday to Paris that he discovered Tintin - and also ate anchovies for the first time. He says that both experiences were equally life changing.

Rupert studied Philosophy at Bristol University and Play Writing at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Rupert has had plays performed in Dublin, Edinburgh, London and on BBC Radio 4. He grew up in Oxfordshire and now lives in Brentford, Middlesex.

This book was not as good as the first one, which contained an aura of mystery. It gave a little bit more closure, but it was not better than the first one.
