Cucumber is all set to move into a prestigious magic school, but fate, a magic oracle, and his pushy parents have other plans. Instead, Cuco is sent on an epic quest across the Doughnut Kingdom, aided by his brave little sister, Almond, to try and prevent the return of the terrible Nightmare Knight.
Angus Cairns is cursed to serve the McGonagall family as a household brownie (a magical person in charge of cleaning), a job he takes very seriously. Unfortunately, the next family in line lives in the United States. Packing up and leaving Scotland is hard enough, but being bound to tidy up after the world’s messiest girl? It’s almost more than Angus can take.
This is not the life for a brownie! I am supposed to be inside, keeping things tidy, not having an adventure!
