    Cordelia loves to spell in every way: studying spelling and practicing spells. She especially likes to double spell, turning her C-A-T into a new C-O-A-T by zapping it with the letter O. So when she sees a sign for the Witches' Double Spelling Bee, she knows it's meant just for her. Cordelia is determined to W-I-N—but so is the thirteen-time champion Beulah Divine, age two hundred and three. Has Cordelia studied and practiced enough to outspell the most fiendish witch at the bee?

    "Shannon has used clever wordplay and created a downright fun language game. . . Classroom spelling bees will never be the same once young readers get their hands on this title."
    School Library Journal

    "Shannon and Fearing combine their considerable talents to create a most bewitching tale of self-confidence and perseverance."
    Kirkus

    "Spelling truly is magic in Shannon's easygoing story about a purple-haired witch named Cordelia who loves spelling words and casting spells."
    Publishers Weekly

    "It's difficult to make a subject like spelling memorable, but Shannon's text engagingly demonstrates the relationship between words while Fearing's pencil and digital illustrations lend a Saturday-morning-cartoon quality to the characters and the comedic spell-casting action."
    The Horn Book Magazine
