West of Widdershins - Barbara Sleigh

A companion volume to North of Nowhere.

West of Widdershins has been described as a gallimaufry of stories brewed in her own cauldron, a collection of nineteen tales, some traditional, some contemporary, and all completely original. From the fertile imagination of Barbara Sleigh, creator of the Carbonel and Calidor stories. With the excellent illustrations of Victor Ambrus. Four golden guinea pigs receive some shocks when they decide to explore the outside world; a schoolteacher one day finds that whenever she says "I Wish", it is granted; a boy from Form 3b loses the the form's Secret Code and is "sent to Coventry" until the library books come to his rescue – and much more!
