Magic Molly: The Witch's Kitten
Molly can talk to animals and she meets a beautiful grey kitten in her father's veterinary surgery who needs her help. Sparkle, the kitten, is lost, and wants Molly to help him get back home.
Molly has to solve a mystery - and use some magic - before she can reunite Sparkle with its owner. The only problem is that Sparkle belongs to the witch in the wood! Will Molly be brave enough to go into the wood, and will she make it out?
Molly is a perfect role model for all pet-lovers: caring and cunning. Her family are well-drawn characters and the farm setting is charming. A well-constructed plot that will keep you guessing how Molly is going to get Sparkle home.
