Salem Hyde just isn't like other kids. For one thing, she's stubborn, independent, and impulsive. For another, she's a witch. Salem acts first and thinks later--which means most of her thinking involves coming up with excuses! Good thing she's been assigned an animal companion, Lord Percival J. Whamsford III. This over-anxious cat doesn't like Salem calling him "Whammy," and Salem doesn't like listening to his long-winded explanations as to why she shouldn't do something . . . like enter the class spelling bee. Salem knows she can beat all her classmates at spells, no problem. Too late, she realizes the competition is about spelling words , not magic. And there's nothing like a misspelled spell to cause all kinds of havoc! Praise for The Misadventures of Salem Hyde: Book One STARRED REVIEWS "A fledgling witch receives necessary guidance from a talking cat in this utterly adorable page-turner... A delightful buddy story and an auspicious series opener; be sure to make room on shelves for Salem and Whammy." -- Kirkus Reviews , starred review "It's just about the perfect story for comics-loving fathers to read with their comics-loving daughters." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review "Cammuso evokes both the sarcastic spunk and gentle warmth of Calvin and Hobbes in this humorous tale of unlikely pals." -- The Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books " Young readers will eat up Cammuso's ( Otto's Orange Day , 2008) action-packed panels, full of cartoonish antics, silly puns, and playful slapstick humor." -- Booklist "The humor, appealing artwork, and underlying message of friendship will attract readers." -- Library Media Connection
