Swordspell
C J Busby
 

In book 4 of this popular series, Max and Olivia have discovered that Morgana Le Fay is plotting to use a mysterious 'Swordspell' against King Arthur at the Festival of Chivalry. They don't know what the spell is or how to stop it, and Olivia also has her training for the Squire's Challenge to worry about. But things are made even worse when Merlin is called away unexpectedly, leaving Max and Olivia without his magical protection. With the help of Sir Lancelot, Sir Bertram and Adolphus the dragon, Ferocious the rat and Vortigern the duck, the Pendragon children must quickly uncover Morgana's evil plan, before it is too late for Arthur and Camelot.

Cauldron Spells
C J Busby
 

Max Pendragon is not looking forward to attending Morgana Le Fay's summer Spell School. Not only is his battered cauldron producing slimy sludge instead of perfect spells, but ever since he and his sister Olivia foiled evil Morgana's plot against King Arthur, they have been wary of her plans for revenge.

But Spell School has more in store for them than they ever imagined. With the help of Merlin and a mysterious bard, Caradoc, can Maz and Olivia outwit Morgana and save Arthur for a second time?

This book was part of the Summer Reading Challenge, coordinated by The Reading Agency and run in 97% of UK public libraries. 780,000 children aged 4-11 took part in this, the biggest national reading initiative.

Frogspell
C J Busby
 

The first in a four-book series for younger readers set in the time of King Arthur. The adventures revisit Camelot, Merlin and Arthur but with a fresh touch, great characterisation and dialogue, and humour. The stories are well plotted, funny and perfectly pitched for the younger reader.

Would-be wizard Max, his sister (who wants to be a knight), two humorous pet animal characters – Ferocious, a world-weary rat and Adolphus, an over-enthusiastic young dragon, encounter magic, double-dealing, Morgan le Fay's schemes to win the throne from Arthur, magical quests and more.
