Thanks Tonyblack, I'll try to find that book, "Witches Abroad". :D


The first 2 books I read were Moving Pictures and Mort and it got me hooked on the series, so i would recommend either :)

Well I don't think I could possibly pick 5 favourites. But I do prefer the Watch & Witch books. I'm also partial to Small Gods.

You might as well ask me for my favourite Thornton's chocolate :lol:


Just out of interest...what is your favourite Thornton's chocolate?

I've already pre-ordered mine from play.com.

Don't usually "do" hardbacks, but when I read the outline of the story, I just had to have it! :lol:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
