Encounter witchly wonders in this sixth book in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike’s Spooksville series—now on TV!
The time has come for Adam and his friends to again face Spooksville’s most powerful citizen, Ms. Ann Templeton. Sally says the woman is definitely a witch, but Adam and Watch are not so certain. To find the truth, they visit her castle together. There they find both good and bad: creatures more horrible than anything they could imagine, but also magical tools that can create the most wonderful things.
But will these tools help Adam and his friends? Or are they just instruments to trick them and make them slaves of the mysterious Ann Templeton?

He lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his longtime partner, Abir.
