Review "This charming crazy story had me giggling all the way through - a magical story about the power of true friendship - I loved it!" -- JASBINDER BILAN, author of ASHA & THE SPIRIT BIRD "Hilarious . . . Kidd balances immersive storytelling in scenes chock-full of absurd detail and incident, with authoritative narrative asides that puncture the suspense with comedy.

Its pages positively crackle with enchantment" ― Sunday Express "Featuring daring circus tricks, mischievous little sisters, the mysterious Switherbroom Hall, and so much enchantment that the pages practically crackle with it, Everyday Magic is action-packed and bursting with fun" -- SINÉAD O’HART, author of THE STAR-SPUN WEB " Everyday Magic is an easy and enjoyable read with lots of creative magical imaginings, vibrant characters and just the right amount of suspense to keep the pages turning quickly" ― Independent, Children's Book of the Week "Everything you'd expect from Jess Kidd, with an especially naughty twinkle in its eye! I loved it" -- EMMA CARROLL, author of THE SOMERSET TSUNAMI "A hugely entertaining book that will enchant and delight younger readers . . . Abounds with joyously madcap characters: familiars, ghosts, imps, witches. But underlying the plentiful fun and giggles is a story that centres on the power of friendship . . . Even with the richness of the world Jess Kidd has created, Everyday Magic is an effortless and charming read" ― Armadillo Magazine " Everyday Magic is a complete adventure. It is filled with joyous moments . . . Fun, energetic and riveting. . . This is a wonderful book, entertaining from the first page to the last" ― Whispering Stories Book Description Magical, mischievous and mysterious, Everyday Magic is an enchanting mix of The Witches, Nevermoor and Lemony Snicket About the Author Jess Kidd was brought up in London as part of a large family from County Mayo.
