Once upon a time there was a girl called Mathelda. She was a shy weakling, with a deep hoarse voice whose mother, the evil witch Dethdemona, had always ridiculed her. Poor Mathelda! All she ever wanted was to be loved and to be as beautiful as her stepsister, Rosalynn. How was she to know that her desire would spark a wicked plan in her mother’s mind? But, where there are dark forces, there are also forces of light. This time they come embodied in the power of the good sorceress, Saraphina, and a mysterious white owl whose big blue eyes see everything. This is no ordinary battle of good against evil. This is the battle of courage, loyalty, and righteousness. This is the journey of finding one’s true self.
