Perhaps her old wizard friend Keekalee can cheer her up? But when she drags out her broomstick and takes her fat cat Jones to visit
Keekalee, they are in for an awful surprise. Keekalee is at the mercy of the terrifying Spikley, a witch who will stop at nothing to get power for herself. How can Mercadzil save her old friend?
