Overview

This third in a series of magic and adventure novels, stars young Beatrice Bailey, apprentice witch, on another of her exciting adventures. The Witches of Sea-Dragon Bay takes Beatrice and her friends Cyrus, Ollie, and Teddy to a very unusual beach resort, where the waters are filled with sea serpents and monsters. As in the previous Beatrice Bailey novels, Beatrice is continuing on her mission to break the spell of Dally Rumpe, the evil sorcerer whose dark powers extend over many different realms. Beatrice and her friends travel in a hot air balloon to the eastern part of the Witches' Sphere, where Sea-Dragon Bay is located. Their balloon mysteriously deflates, and they need to be rescued by the Ghost Guard. Several other ordeals follow, all of them having mysterious causes. They include Ollie being trapped in a cellar flooded by rising tide, and Beatrice being stalked by an army of ferocious rats. Young readers will keep turning pages of this fast-moving tale, as Beatrice meets and overcomes a variety of mysterious and sometimes humorous challenges. (Ages 10-14)

Trying to undo the spell of the evil Dally Rumpe, Beatrice travels to a seaside resort, where she meets her father's great-uncle and cousins and learns about their connection to the evil sorcerer.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Beatrice, a 12-year-old apprentice witch, continues the quest assigned by the Witches' Executive Committee to determine her official magical rating. She must rescue a wizard's four daughters who have been imprisoned by an evil sorcerer in strongholds scattered throughout the enchanted country of Bailiwick. Having successfully liberated the first two captives in The Everyday Witch (2002) and The Witches of Friar's Lantern (2003, both Barron's), Beatrice, her three friends, and two newly assigned witches now travel to Sea-Dragon Bay, where Ailsa is confined in an off-shore castle guarded by fearsome sea monsters. The expedition faces numerous problems: the travelers' hot-air balloon crash-lands; one of the companions is nearly drowned in a flooded cellar; and Beatrice is trapped in a rat-filled dungeon. The friends suspect that one of the newcomers is in league with the enemy. Familiarity with Beatrice's previous adventures is helpful, but not essential, and a number of plot threads are left unresolved for later volumes. This book, like J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series (Scholastic), features young magic-users in training, an arcane world coexisting with the mortal sphere, a witches' hierarchy, and a villain who is regularly foiled but never completely defeated. Although Bailiwick isn't as fully realized a place as Rowling's Hogwarts, Forrester's title is worth consideration where fantasy is popular.-Elaine E.

    Not a bad series...

    ...but definitely could be better. The series is VERY predictable and although you can't help but hope Beatrice breaks the spell of Dally Rumpe, you never really get involved with the characters. If you just need a book to pass the time this one's ok, but if you're looking for amazing fantasy books try the author Tamora Pierce (Circle of Magic Series, Song of the Lioness Series and many more).
