Jennifer Claessen Author Visits

We are thrilled to be bringing the fantastic Jennifer Claessen, author of the brilliant October Witches, to visit as Hamstel Junior School's Star Author on the 27th of November.


November Witches is the second adventure set within the fantasy world of the A Month of Magic series! Jennifer will be sharing her books, speaking to the children about being an author, and all things magical during a very special assembly before setting them a writing challenge and visiting classrooms throughout the day. We hope the children will have a  fantastic day.


We know that author visits often inspire children to want to read and share the author's books, so following the event there will be an opportunity for the children to meet Jennifer and have their own copy of the book personalised and signed at a book signing during the day. Please use this form to pre-order books and guarantee availability of the book. Pre-orders need to be with us by midday the 26th of November.  


Please choose School Event as the delivery option at the checkout.

October Witches by Jennifer Claessen, Illustrated by Heidi Cannon

There's so much to love about October - Halloween, pumpkin everything and MAGIC. Especially magic. But for nervous young witch Clemmie, this October might see the stars descend on her for the first time, bringing with them a whole month of chaotic new power.

She's spent twelve years watching her mum, aunts and cousin receive their October power and knows that, for the Merlyns, magic can get very messy. And there are those who want to harness their magic and make it last beyond October. It's a bold experiment, until Clemmie and her coven find themselves in mortal danger.

What price must be paid for magic that never ends? Or for having magic at all?


The November Witches by Jennifer Claessen, Illustrated by Heidi Cannon

No witch is excited about gloomy magic-free November apart from young hag Clemmie who is relieved to finally be done with October's magical mess. But if there's no more magic, then where are all the armour-clad knights coming from? When even their enemy coven, the Morgans, don't have any answers, the Merlyns are on the run. Neither the Morgan or Merlyn covens want to burn so they will have to work together to solve the mystery of where the witch-hunting knights and the all-engulfing flames are coming from. Will Clemmie be able to find her voice in time to save her family?


Continuing directly on from The October Witches, this November sequel is full of bonfires, knights, family disasters and one very important round table.
