The Spell series is a set of rollocking magical adventures aimed at age 7-10, but younger children may enjoy having it read to them. It is set in the time of King Arthur, and follows the fortunes of Max Pendragon, a young squire who would rather be a wizard, and his sister Olivia, who wants to be a knight. Together with Olivia’s brainless young dragon, Adolphus, and Max’s rat, Ferocious, they try to outwit Morgana le Fay and save King Arthur from her dastardly plots.

“Take a dollop of Arthurian legend, add a couple of kids and a dragon called Adolphus and mix it all up in a magical cauldron. What do you get? A spellbinding recipe for a hysterical series… Like all the best fantasies, it’s fast, far-fetched and furiously funny” Daily Mirror, on Cauldron Spells.
