A bind-up edition of two books from the much-loved classic children's series Pongwiffy featuring The Spell of the Year and The Holiday of Doom!
When Pongwiffy is forced to spring clean her hovel she finds an old magic spell to help her! But it turns out that the old-fashioned ingredients are tricky to come by, especially when they belong to the familiars of other witches...

In the second story, the rain won't stop and Pongwiffy is BORED. So she decides to plan a holiday! But when Pongwiffy blows all of the Coven's funds on a trip to Sludgehaven-on-Sea, maybe being bored isn't such a bad thing.

Two laugh-out-loud stories of humour and warmth, enticingly mixed with much sludge, slime and very bad habits. Now with brand new illustrations from Katy Riddell!
