Cordelia loves to spell in every way:&nbspstudying spelling and practicing spells. She especially likes to double spell, turning her C-A-T into a new C-O-A-T&nbspby zapping it with the letter O.&nbspSo when she sees a sign for the Witches' Double Spelling Bee, she knows it's meant just for her. Cordelia is determined to W-I-N-but so is the thirteen-time champion Beulah Divine, age two hundred and three.&nbspHas&nbspCordelia studied and practiced enough to&nbspoutspell the most fiendish witch at the bee?

Editorial Reviews

Shannon has used clever wordplay and created a downright fun language game. . . Classroom spelling bees will never be the same once young readers get their hands on this title." - School Library Journal "Shannon and Fearing combine their considerable talents to create a most bewitching tale of self-confidence and perseverance." - Kirkus "Spelling truly is magic in Shannon's easygoing story about a purple-haired witch named Cordelia who loves spelling words and casting spells." - Publishers Weekly "It's difficult to make a subject like spelling memorable, but Shannon's text engagingly demonstrates the relationship between words while Fearing's pencil and digital illustrations lend a Saturday-morning-cartoon quality to the characters and the comedic spell-casting action." - The Horn Book Magazine 'Shannon and Fearing turn a spelling lesson into magic.' - USA Today "
