Book Fairy for a Day: Cathy Fitzgerald hides her book Pinch Perkins and the Midsummer Curse

“It was a hot sunny day on Tricky Dragon Lane and someone had been cursing magical Londoners.”

The Book Fairies have been sharing copies of Pinch Perkins and the Midsummer Curse by Cathy FitzGerald! This great new book is timed around the summer solstice, and we were lucky enough to be joined by author Cathy Fitzgerald as Book Fairy for a Day…

About the book:

Midsummer’s Eve is about to get a whole lot more magical! Someone is misusing magic. Curses have been cast and terrifying creatures are on the move…

Twelve-year-old Pinch Perkins lives on Tricky Dragon Lane, deep in the heart of London’s magical quarter. But when her mum is struck by a curse, and nobody seems to have a clue what to do, Pinch knows it’s down to her to find a cure.

Racing the clock on Midsummer’s Eve, Pinch will face the terrifying boss of the Thames Mudlarks, dance with the devious fairy king and queen and share a burger with King Arthur’s knights… all while trying to avoid the clutches of two fearsome villains out to SQUISH her!

Happy Finders!
