Pongwiffy is a very smelly witch of very dirty habits. But she is a happy witch - until the day the gruesome gang of goblins move in next door and make her life miserable. So she goes to live with her not-so-best friend, Sharkadder, who tries to find her a new slum and a much-needed familiar. All they can come up with is a hamster from Amsterdam called Hugo. What an embarrassment! But Hugo is really an amazing hamster with hidden strengths...

Short but wonderfully nostalgic.
Grand Witch Sour Muddle is beautifully narrated and is such a sympathetic character. However Hugo makes me cackle with laughter every time I listen!
I laughed out loud at this book. I would recommend it to any child who likes slightly icky and very funny books and to any adult who enjoys the good vocabulary and story telling.
I had the whole series of these on tape as a child. I rediscovered them a few days ago and was delighted that Audible had the same version, read by Prunella Scales. They are just as funny, fun and imaginative as I remembered and so beautifully read!
I cannot think of a better narrator than Prunella Scales! When so many good audiobooks are let down by the narrator this story is more beautifully enhanced!
I loved the book as a child and as an adult I get to relive it all over again with glee.
