Witches loose again

Once again Tom and the Spook venture into battle. Alice joins them and they journey into the unknown. Alice challenging Tom and the both of them challenging the Spook. This is the fourth adventure and still the story continues to surprise us with new material.
The story is engaging and the narration is superb. Just the right dialect to make it more entertaining
Overall I give this next chapter in the adventures of the Spook and Tom five stars.
The story line, with similar antics as in the previous books is extremely engaging as Tom learns more and more about his future employment, his family and new foes to conquer.

Great books for boys

I am now on book six and loving the adventure. It can get a bit scary to times, but great adventures.
