    A Must Have!

    I found 'Spells' to be a unique and well-written little book. The words are easy to understand, and while 'cute' in appearance, 'Spells' doesn't step into the world of popular 'teen witch' books at all! The photography and layout on each page is amazing and worthwhile. Beginners should pick this one up for use later on, because this book shouldn't really be used as a reference source in learning everything one needs to know about the Craft and paganism in general. After finally readying oneself for spell-casting, this little book is a must-have!

    Very good For beginners

    This book was very interesting and it gave you the symbols of items, this encourages you to make your own spells. It helps you to use your own creativity and use more of your strengths and customize spells to fit your needs. Diva Kisses and Movie Star Hugs, Jessie

    It's good, not the best

    The spell book is good, but the materials you will need can be complicating to find, I highly reccomend the Book of Good Spells, it has more spells in it and the witch craft works with some of them.

    DEFINATELY INTERESTING!!

    This book is very intresting,Nicola de Pulford gives you many spells from different countries which gives you a wide range to choose from.A good book for a beginner but I'd suggest you learn some history about the type of things you should know before diving into a load of spells.
