Magwhite wasn't much of a place, but there was always adventure to be found. Josh, Ryan, and Chelle spent their money on ice cream. But now they needed to get home. When the three friends discover a well, Josh climbs down and retrieves some coins. The Well Witch is not happy, and now the kids must start making past wishes come true as penance.
Enjoy this as a great story. Throughout the book there are opportunities to pause and ask questions: what do you think will happen next? What will Ryan/Josh/Chelle do? What would you do?

Borrow. Those who like ghost stories will enjoy this as a bedtime story. It is not a "Halloween book" but it has that spooky quality to it that fits with the season.
Well Witched turned quickly from *just* an adventure to an intriguing story about right and wrong, secrets, choices and consequences. It is a fun read, but it has more depth than its premise might suggest. Overall, the story seems to be a cross between a Grimm's fairy tale and an Aesop's fable.
Mystery and fantasy lovers alike will find themselves totally wrapped up in Josh's, Ryan's and Chelle's adventure.
