Reviews of A Sprinkle of Sorcery

A wonderful book filled with magic . . . Michelle is definitely one of my favourite authors.

Lisa Thompson (author of The Goldfish Boy)

Harrison’s fully imagined world has conviction, and the perils of this story are lightened by the warmth and spirit of its characters.


The Sunday Times

If you enjoyed the first outing of the Widdershins sisters in A Pinch of Magic, you’ll be just as enthralled by this sequel . . . which has a refreshing vein of sisterly banter and squabbling amid the high-octane supernatural adventure.

Daily Mail

A huge bravo! Your fans are going to love it. This one definitely did.

Emma Carroll (author of LETTERS FROM THE LIGHTHOUSE)

An eerie adventure sure to enchant readers.

Sophie Anderson (author of THE GIRL WHO SPEAKS BEAR)

A sparkling treasure box of delight and wonder.
