Tea O'Clock

Writing from a (boring) town with non-magical people, we bring you a rare page-turner tale for your morning tea. It starts with Percy the (not-so-good) Wizard waking up late, smelling yesterday’s socks and rushing out the door. Did he pretend to be a dodgy plumber on purpose? Local reports say he scared the neighbours and turned retired people into beach balls! No wonder he got in a tangle with the J.A.M.I !
