  • Mr Majeika and Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book bind-up

  • Two books in one for those avid readers where one Mr Majeika adventure is just not enough!

    Mr Majeika: Mr Majeika can behave just like any ordinary teacher if he wants to, but something has to be done about Hamish Bigmore, the class nuisance, and so he uses a little magic to turn him into a frog - the only problem is he can't remember the spell to turn him back!

    Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book: The pupils in Class 3 at St Barty's School are not impressed when their headteacher imposes strict rules of behaviour for Halloween. Mr Majeika uses a little magic to make the evening memorable but nasty Hamish Bigmore tells the local press and gets the wizard-teacher the sack -something has to be done . . .

    Mr Majeika continues to be one of the UK's most loved and trusted fictional characters.
