It's All Spells' Night, the broomstick is waiting and soon Junior Wizard Ben-Muzzy and his companions, Joel and Gemma, are off to Proverbial Village, meeting Smellibots, Teeny Meanies, big furry Wallopers and an old witch called Grimwade.
Vlad the Drac wants a holiday, and although there are lots of travel guides around, nothing seems very suitable for a vegetarian vampire. Vlad is disgusted and decides that there is only one solution to the problem - he’ll have to write one himself! What’s more, he’ll take the entire Stone family with him on his travels! New York, London, Paris - where would a nicely brought up vampire like to go for his holidays? Another hilarious adventure with Vlad the Drac, from bestselling author Ann Jungman.
Australia - isn’t that where everyone walks around upside down, drinking beer while kangaroos jump up and down on them? And there aren’t any vampires there, are there? Vlad can’t think of anywhere worse and so he’s horrified when he finds himself on his way to Australia with Paul and Judy’s family, instead of going back to Romania. But Vlad finds new fans in Australia and begins to enjoy himself much more than he had expected to.
‘I am on holly day. Meet me in the wood, same as before for FUN AND ADVENCHER’. No sooner have twins Joel and Gemma received this note from Junior Wizard Ben-Muzzy than the friends are off on a second magical trip.This time they find themselves in Wonderland, with Airy Fairies, Paddiwack Gnomes and the Great Nurdle Bore. But Ben-Muzzy’s spells are as bad as his spelling, so trouble is never far away!
Ben-Muzzy is a second-class Junior Wizard in the service of the Grand High Wizard, Wollibar. Today, though, he could become a first-class Junior Wizard. All he has to do is get his spells right - and Ben-Muzzy knows his spells backwards. Unfortunately, saying spells backwards can get a wizard into a lot of trouble, especially if it’s a vanishing spell. One moment Ben-Muzzy is in the examination room and the next he’s... well, lost in a wood somewhere - which is where the twins, Joel and Gemma, find him.
