Book Review - Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel

Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel

About the Book
Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens.

Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity.

Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison's seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don't quite go as planned, it's a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches' latest vile scheme.

My Take on the Book
We loved the movie Hocus Pocus when it came out many years ago and always wondered if there would be a sequel and now we have that in a form of a new book.  This was a fun book that really brought forth the Sanderson Sisters again in all of their glory. The book itself also brought out some additional new characters that we loved. I say we because my daughter and I read this together, and for us it was a ton of fun to read as a father and daughter team. There is rich imagery, great characters and a plot that keeps you reading from beginning to end. If you loved the movie, you will love this book!
