Cassie Morgan

Cassie is a bookish, clever girl who longs for adventure and magic. Seven years ago her mother left her at boarding school and disappeared. Cassie is desperate to find her and learn the truth about her family.

With the help of a grumpy, talking cat called Montague, she travels to the village of Hedgely and meets her aunt – the Hedgewitch. Cassie starts training to be a witch herself and is working towards her Witch’s Licence.

Hedgely Coven

In Cassie’s world, girls who want to be witches join the local coven – meeting once a week after school to train in the practical skills of witchcraft. They gather herbs, brew potions, fly brooms and make protective amulets.

For their achievements, they earn special badges and they have to pass something called the ‘Fledgling Test’ to earn their witch’s hats.
