Young Effie, the witch-in-training, is not pleased that her aunts are sending her off to a sleep-away witches camp for the summer. They insist she'll learn a lot and have a great experience but they don't mention glowing green hands, mean fellow campers, swimming and the plethora of other good and not-so-good things in store. Effie finds camp to be definitely strange--but what does one expect surrounded by witches?

I absolutely love this graphic novel series and this third book has been my favorite of the bunch. Its part classic "summer camp" story mixed with the fun witch-y magic I've come to expect from Ms. Escabasse's books. Great characters, wonderful illustrations, a fun story arc--this one ticks all the boxes. This was one graphic novel I wished would go on for another 100 pages of adventure!
