A magical, action-packed adventure for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be enchanted by this fun new fantasy

We love the look of this brand new fantasy adventure, which has all the ingredients of a middle grade hit: magic, humour, action and adventure combined with brilliant world-building and a fabulous cast of magical characters. Perfect summer reading!


Midsummer’s Eve is about to get a whole lot more magical!

Someone is misusing magic. Curses have been cast and terrifying creatures are on the move …

Twelve-year-old Pinch Perkins lives on Tricky Dragon Lane, deep in the heart of London’s magical quarter. But when her mum is struck by a curse, and nobody seems to have a clue what to do, Pinch knows it’s down to her to find a cure.

Racing the clock on Midsummer's Eve, Pinch will face the terrifying boss of the Thames Mudlarks, dance with the devious fairy king and queen and share a burger with King Arthur's knights … all while trying to avoid the clutches of two fearsome villains out to SQUISH her!

Cathy FitzGerald is a writer, producer and presenter. She is the founder and caretaker of Strange & Charmed, a school for people who tell stories in sound.
