Overview

A hilarious sequel to THE WITCH TRADE, featuring memorable characters of almost Dickensian proportions and an action-filled, fantastical plot that literally defies the imagination!

In this rollicking new adventure, we are reintroduced to Wolfbane, the escaped leader of the evil Night Witches. Wolfbane and his dreadful mother, Lucia Cheeseman, plot revenge on the heroes of THE WITCH TRADE. Between them, they conspire to summon up a long dead witch who knows the secret of time travel, allowing them to go back in time to change the course of events that led to their downfall. This sequel offers a hilarious second glimpse into the world of THE WITCH TRADE, but for children who haven't read the first book, it can easily stand on its own as a brand new adventure.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Enraged by his defeat in The Witch Trade (Scholastic, 2001), evil Night Witch Wolfbane concocts an elaborate revenge in this less trite, more tongue-in-cheek sequel. Though the first episode's cast, led by intrepid witch-in-training Abby and stylish thespian Sir Chadwick Street, Grand Master of the Light Witches, is already bursting at the seams, Molloy adds yet more magical creatures, notably a donkeylike pooka with a wide brogue; a displaced band of mischievous woodland elves capable of tickling Night Witches to death; and a clan of powerful, bureaucratic Wizards with a mysterious agenda. Enlisting the aid of his loathsome mother and Baal, a jumbo spider, Wolfbane kidnaps Sir Chadwick's fianc e, Hilda, then travels back in time to change the future by killing an ancestor of Abby's. Abby and her many friends pursue, of course, plunging into a whirl of subplots, reverses, confrontations, narrow squeaks, and magic dusts of diverse properties. In the end, Hilda and Sir Chadwick are reunited, Abby's forbear is saved, Wolfbane is lost in the gulfs of time (until the next episode, no doubt), and Baal meets a deliciously squishy fate under the wheels of a train. Readers fond of sometimes-gruesome, sometimes-grand set pieces, and stout-hearted heroes of both sexes facing scenery-chewing baddies with names like Snivel Cheeseman, can look forward to a grand romp.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
