Wizadora is a trainee wizard.

But magic is difficult for a beginner and her house it full of things which she has accidentally brought to life - a pompous coat-hanger, a trio of naughty odd socks and a

sweet but naive scarecrow.

Now they’ve become her friends, Wizadora's life becomes more complicated every day!
