My miss Seven really loved book one and two of this series so I was excited to receive book three in the series Witches. As with the previous two books Witches follows the adventures of the shape shifter dragon Merek. As always this book is crammed with fantastic black and white illustrations and lots of informative boxes filled with dragon like time facts.

My miss Seven really enjoyed it, with bottom humour revolving around the dragons allergy to Brussel sprouts. She now understands the general structure of these books, set at knight school, realising that the opening chapter will describe a fix that Merek is in, with the remainder of the book revealing how he had gotten into that fix, and how eventually Merek wins the day and once again trumps Percy, the spoilt son of the powerful Lord Crumble.

These have been great books for Miss Seven to read with her dad and they both enjoy the humour in these books. The illustration's are funny also and Miss Seven shares these with her little sister. Because these are chapter books and the print is clear (the typeset is Berkeley Oldstyle) Miss Seven is able to read these by herself also. She will often read the chapter again to herself after she has read it with her dad.

If you have enjoyed the previous two books then this is more of the same and will be just as enjoyable. I can definitely recommend this.

Having read the first two books in this series I was stoked to have this come up for review and receive it. When I showed my eldest daughter, she just about jumped out of her skin with excitement. She asked if I could start reading it right that second! So I did read her one chapter before heading off to get dinner ready.

One chapter was not enough and after dinner she asked if I was doing anything and if we could read another chapter. So off we went to her room to have another chapter. She managed to get another chapter out of me at bedtime as well. Needless to say, we burned our way through this book faster than an Arbalest can make apple juice.

There are a couple of stories flowing through this book. The main one being around a possible Witch in the village and Merek's involvement in her possible trial. Ultimately an event with an Arbalest (which was pretty cool!) leads to the witch and Merek crossing paths. Percy continues to be the character that we must love to hate. There was many protests and "this is NOT fair" from Miss 8 throughout the story relating to Percy. I agreed with her.

Then there is the classic Mewburn/Bixley gross stuff. I mean really, they step it up just about every book. But this one, had me gagging and having to stop to clear my mind quite a bit guys! Even the thought of the green pus was enough to make my stomach lurk. They do promise that the book will be revoltingly funny, and this is very true. Bixley's illustrations are genius as always. My daughter loves the "historical" facts interlaced through the chapters, because the pictures say just about everything needed. Lots of laughs to be had! If you/your kids liked the Dinosaur Rescue books, these books are a no-brainer. If you/your kids like history and gross stuff, and dragons definitely pick this up.
