The Magical Flower Shop (Vol. 2): Jinxed Plans
Der magische Blumenladen, Band 2: Ein total verhexter GlücksplanView all books in the series
ContentViolet's friend Zack is scared of a sports competition at his school – once again, he will lose and the other boys will make fun of him. Violet doesn't want to let that happen. Even though she has promised her aunt never to touch the book of flower magic again, she looks for a recipe that could help Zack. And indeed: Zack is off to a flying start at the sports competition. However, Violet has accidentally given him “Essence of Roses” and not “Magical Stitchwort” oil – that has ended up in the bakery's marzipan croissants and makes everyone who has tried them give their less-than-friendly fellow human beings a good piece of their minds. Recipe at the end of the book: Auntie Abigail's Secret Recipe for Marzipan Croissants with Rose Magic
About the SeriesFor nine-year-old Violet, there is no better place than her Auntie Abigail's flower shop in a small British town. Both of them share a special gift: With the aid of a book of ancient flower recipes that only Violet and her aunt can read, they use flowers to heal and help people. Over the course of the series, Violet is being introduced to the secret flower magic. In each self-contained volume, she solves a major problem, though of course not without a few hiccups. Her friends, twins Jack (Jaqueline) and Zack, everyday life at school and cheeky animals play important roles as well.
