When Molly shows up on Castle Hangnail’s doorstep to fill the vacancy for a wicked witch, the castle’s minions are understandably dubious. After all, she is twelve years old, barely five feet tall, and quite polite. (The minions are used to tall, demanding evil sorceresses with razor-sharp cheekbones.) But the castle desperately needs a master or else the Board of Magic will decommission it, leaving all the minions without the home they love. So when Molly assures them she is quite wicked indeed (So wicked! REALLY wicked!) and begins completing the tasks required by the Board of Magic for approval, everyone feels hopeful. Unfortunately, it turns out that Molly has quite a few secrets, including the biggest one of all: that she isn’t who she says she is.

Beautifully written book that isn't only for children. The story is surprisingly original and so are the characters. Only Ursula Vernon could give fully developed personalities to a steam-entity, a glorified pin-cushion "doll", and a pile of metal armour. I enjoyed this book more than I did the f...

4.0 Review: Castle Hangnail
This book is adorable, and I am madly in love with it. The illustrations are great. The characters are wonderful. It has a lovely sense of humor and a healthy respect for just how out of control mint can get.

Castle Hangnail needs a new Master, but when Molly (a Wicked Witch) arrives, she’s not quite what any of the minions expect. I loved the fresh, funny story, which also reminded me of classic middle grade books, like Diana Wynne Jones and Terry Pratchett (Vernon notes Eva Ibbotson as an influence too...
