Only clever witches, undertakers, souls and sailors can help Spel break the curse placed on Egg by finding the ingredients for the spell. They’re hidden by a Magical Decoding Device so The Witchhunter General doesn’t discover them! Use the decoder to find the name of each ingredient.
About Once We Were Witches
Thirteen years ago, magic was banished and the witches were hunted. Sisters Spel and Egg are the daughters of witches, but they grow up in Miss Mouldheel’s School for Wicked Girls with no idea who they really are. Until the day the message arrives telling them to run . . .
The message sends them to a funeral parlour in a far away village – and their new guardian, the Undertaker, has a secret. Beneath the funeral parlour is a portal to the Other Ways – four worlds that lie parallel to ours. When Egg vanishes through the portal, Spel knows she must try to save her sister. But no one can step between the worlds – or can they?
A spellbinding new middle grade series crackling with magic and adventure, perfect for fans of Starfell, Nevermoor and A Pinch of Magic.
