"Oliver Griffon and the Witch's Curse is a great story for kids--and adults!" -- Said by someone very important.
But what's the story about? Read on... Oliver can’t stay out of trouble. And he’s gotten into a heap of it this time. In the waning days of October, strange magical events happen around Orchard Hollow, the little town where Oliver lives. He soon finds himself and his friends cursed to die on Halloween by the town witch. But other mysterious forces are at work around Oliver, too. If he and his friends play their cards right, they might be able to remove the witch’s curse. If not, this Halloween will be their last.
In this story, follow Oliver and his friends as they take their first steps into the Mysterious World, a place where name brand wizardry and quirky and humorous magic is commonplace. Need a magical feather duster, or maybe a sword, or maybe even the wand of a long-dead wizard? The Mysterious World has all of that. But there are also other surprises lurking there as well--forgotten tombs, peculiar places, and sometimes even a nasty witch or two.
