CASTLE HANGNAIL, by Ursula Vernon

hangnail

The story: The minions at Castle Hangnail are expecting an Evil Sorceress or some other kind of dark master. Instead, they get Molly–a supposedly Wicked Witch who just seems too nice to be in charge. But there’s no doubt she has magic, and there’s no doubt she’s up to the Tasks decreed for the Master–at least, until her former bestie but now arch-enemy Eudaimonia shows up and challenges her to a magical duel. Can the minions get past what Molly’s SUPPOSED to be like in time to help her turn things around?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like magical stories of the not-that-evil variety, this is a great choice!  And if you like this one, also check out all the books by author Eva Ibbotson.
