    When Witch Pongwiffy finds Granny Malodour's famous recipe for Wishing Water, she's determined to concoct the magic brew and enter it for the Spell of the Year competition. But first she has to get the ingredients, and some of them are very hard to come by - there's no problem with the half pint of skunk stock, but getting a bobble from a goblin's hat could be tricky!

What an embarrassment! But Hugo is really an amazing hamster with hidden strengths...

    Spellovision has come to Witchway Wood, and everyone's got one. Pongwiffy thinks it's boring and prefers old-fashioned amusement - like learning to play the guitar. Gradually all the witches join her, and the group becomes so popular that Pongwiffy suggests they go on Spellovision, as they're better than the rubbish already on. So the great Spellovision Song Contest is born. Anyone can enter - except the Goblins who only care about driving cars.
