The story and illustrations

The story is set in the madcap village of Runnynose, a world in which the inhabitants literally live up to their name.  Unfortunately for Harry, a rather ordinary boy who is about to say farewell to his strange music teacher,  he discovers that she is a lot stranger than he could have possibly imagined…

     A Wizard in the Kitchen is essentially a black comedy where high drama is reduced to absurdity by its colourful and utterly ridiculous leading lady: a tale involving a weird warning; a weary wanderer; a wacky witch and a wayward… piano!
