Dagger & Dash:
Enter Three Witches
Amanda Dagger is an eleven-year-old Sherlock Holmes in pink converse sneakers. Freddy Dash is the class clown, baseball star and school detention pro. The unlikely friends team up again when an ancient skeleton is unearthed on school grounds under suspicious circumstances, and all fingers point to three spinster sisters known in town as the Riverbend witches. It’s the beginning of sixth grade and Amanda plays Lady Macbeth in the school play while Freddy practices for the championship fall baseball game. But their lives become more complicated when the school is vandalized and a stranger stalks them on Halloween night. Amanda and Freddy must uncover the secret behind these strange events, before they become the next victims.
Ned is excited. He’s entered his goose Sassy in the Pumpkintown Pet Parade, dressing her up as his favorite superhero Squash Gourdon.
But Ned forgot to lock Sassy’s pen, and now she’s escaped just before the parade is about to begin. If only Squash Gourdon could save the day! Luckily, the Pumpkintown community comes to the rescue.
When Ned and his friends set off to find Sassy, they soon discover that she has waddled all over town causing quite a stir. Where could Sassy be?
Join Neddington Patch and his pumpkin pals in their first Pumpkintown adventure!
