Oh dear. I think we've overdosed on Meg and Mog books and it took a slightly lacklustre entry in the series to finally turn Charlotte off the books altogether. Though this could coincide with her interest in dressing up as a Princess rather than dressing up as a witch (oh the humanity, a month before Halloween too!)
This Meg and Mog adventure sees the Trynamic Trio off on a picnic in a distinctly odd looking vehicle. As you've come to expect from Meg's spells, things don't quite go according to plan when she tries to conjure up a magic car to take them on their day out. Though it's a fairly throwaway story it has its moments, but Charlotte really didn't think much of this in comparison to the other books in the series we've covered in this blog. Ah well...
Charlotte's Best Bit: Mog's choice of car.
Daddy's favourite bit: Meg hanging upside down from a branch with her dress over her head.
