Abstract:

" ... the beady-eyed, green-tongued witch Truda Hangnail spreads evil along her path to succeed Queen Bluebell, enlisting the kingdom's rats and shrinking the good witches of Wadingburn to pave her way to the throne. Luckily, a sweet-natured orphan named Loobly is witness to Truda's evil spells and sets off to fetch help."--Jacket flap.

When the quill writes "Go Go Go" frantically on the wall, and the House of the Ancient Crones heaves Gracie Gillypot outside onto the path, it can mean only one thing: there's Trouble in the Five Kingdoms. This time it's in the form of a beady-eyed, green-tongued witch named Truda Hangnail.

Good addition to the library

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-12-02) Very Good Permalink

Two girls named Loobly and Trueheart Gracie, along with other friends attempt to get rid of Truda Hangnail, a witch with deep magic. I think it's a good book and a fourth grader and up would enjoy it. Student Review.
