(From the publisher):
Beatrice is a twelve-year-old witch whose talent for magic-making sometimes falters. In this story, the Witches' Executive Committee continues its test to learn whether Beatrice is worthy to become a "Classical Witch," capable of working important magic. She and her friends must now spend time in Friar's Lantern, a village surrounded by eerie swamps and located uncomfortably close to the menacing neighboring town of Werewolf Close. This spooky adventure introduces Beatrice and her friends to a crazy old man witch named Yorick...to a weird group of magical cats...to spooky ghosts who haunt the swamps...and to the toad-like water leaper whose generous spirit belies his grotesque appearance.
