Set in the early 1950s during McCartheism, Janie's family moves from California to London to avoid being blacklisted. In London she meets the Apothecary and his son. A chance encounter puts the two young people on an amazing adventure to save the world. The illustrations are a nice addition. The magic is fun and puts the characters in some uncomfortable positions.
