Upside-Down Magic: Sticks and Stones

co-authored by Sarah Mlynowski and Lauren Myracle.


Strange things are happening at Dunwiddle Magic School – and the Upside-Down Magic class is getting blamed! 

 Yes, Marigold did shrink Lacey Clench to the size of a mouse. But that was an accident. And, yes, most people weren’t prepared for Nory to transform into a squippy (that’s half squid, half puppy) – but it’s not like Nory meant to mix up paws and tentacles. And while Bax does have the unfortunate magical condition of turning into a stone, he swears he has nothing to do with some of the rocky magic that’s been causing a string of Dunwiddle disasters.

 When things gets messy, it’s easy to point your finger at the kids with the messiest magic.  But the Upside-Down Magic students aren’t going to let themselves be blamed. Instead, they’re going to find out what’s really going on – and get their school back on track before something really wacky happens.
