With Gorgomoth the Unclean on the loose, it's up to Wednesday and Alfie to save the day - again! Book 2 in the wildly fun Wednesday Weeks series, which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day?
Wednesday Weeks is just starting to get the hang of this whole magic thing. But Gorgomoth the Unclean is on the loose again and he's out to ruin everything, for keeps.
When Gorgomoth steals the Crown of Destiny and turns Grandpa into a frog, it's up to Wednesday and Alfie - with help from Bruce and their new friend Adaline - to track him down.
But wormholes, giant pinball machines and a stolen crown are only the beginning. Throw in a floating fortress full of goblins, some misbehaving magic and a missing pair of eyebrows, and Wednesday and Alfie are going to have to take their magic - and their science - to the next level.
Book 2 in the brilliant Wednesday Weeks series, which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day?
Wednesday Weeks and the Crown of Destiny has exceeded my expectations. Through epic twists and turns, this second instalment ramped up each of my favourite aspects, taking the series to an exciting and unexpected level. - Better Reading
