The second magical adventure of Jennifer Strange, now in paperback!

A long time ago, magic faded away. All that the world was left with were yo-yos, the extremely useful compass-pointing-to-north-enchantment and a spell that keeps bicycles from falling over.

But things are about to change. Magical power is on the rise, and-King Snodd IV of Hereford has realized that he who controls magic controls almost everything. Only one person stands between Snodd and his-plans for power and riches beyond the wildest dreams of avarice.

Meet Jennifer Strange, the sixteen-year-old acting manager of Kazam, an employment agency for sorcerers and soothsayers. With help from only one functioning Wizard and her faithful assistant, Tiger Prawns, Jennifer must use every ounce of ingenuity to derail King Snodd's plans. It may involve a magic carpet, the mysterious Transient Moose and a powerless sorceress named Once Magnificent Boo.

But one thing is certain: Jennifer Strange will not relinquish the-noble powers of magic to big business and commerce without a fight.
