How surprising is it to discover that a "clowder" really is the word for a bunch of cats? As four bewitching members of a coven put together a brew to summon a groom, readers will discover a whole slew of disturbing new vocabulary words. Cobras, for example, are a "quiver" when they gather together. A group of mice is a very apropos “mischief.” Find out more as the witches gather toads, goldfish, worms, and more—only to discover that the desired groom, Brungles himself, is less than willing to find matrimonial bliss.
