Summary

Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the 25th anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens.

Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity.

Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison's 17-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don't quite go as planned, it's a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches' latest vile scheme.

revisiting and extending a favourite

I am sad I didn't know about this sooner. I loved Hocus Pocus as a child and introducing the kids to it pretty much every year when it reruns. the sequel was okay, like it was left open for more

Damn you Disney! this needs to be a movie

I'd heard talk of a sequel and hoped for a movie, unfortunately that's not happening. Fortunately we have got a book. The story was a fun nostalgic trip down memory lane. I loved the open ending and hope for further adventures of the Sanderson sisters.

A bit of a mixed bag - a bunch of hocus Pocus really!

Hocus Pocus was 5 stars.

The all new sequel was 3 stars.
The performance of this book was awful. For the witches. All other characters were fine but the witches she played sweet and friendly. Don’t know what she was thinking. Really put me off the story in parts.
