Hocus Pocus and the All-new Sequel by A.W. Jantha Review is here.
It’s Halloween, and what better way to spend it than reading a Hocus Pocus novel? This Disney book came out to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the beloved Hocus Pocus. In this novel, there are two parts. First, we get taken back to the original Hocus Pocus.
Max Dennison moves to Salem from California. He immediately has a crush on Allison. A popular girl in his new school. Unknowingly, though, Max unleashes evil witches, and it is up to him to rid Salem of them before the sun rises. With his younger sister Dani, a black cat named Binx, and Allison, the three must do the impossible and return to witches where they belong.
Fast forward twenty-five years, and we meet Poppy. Max and Allison’s daughter. She ends up casting a spell that brings the Sanderson sisters back and puts her family at risk. With the help of her friends Travis and Isabella, Poppy must do what her parents did twenty-five years ago…the impossible. While she can’t stop her feelings towards Isabella, Poppy must stay focused. Can she stop her sister witches a third time? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
Overall, I really enjoyed Hocus Pocus and the All-new sequel. It was fresh, and I loved Part 2. I enjoyed all the characters and loved Poppy. She wasn’t the traditional protagonist, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also enjoyed the return of the Sanderson sisters. This is a book you need to read, even if it isn’t Halloween. Hocus Pocus is always a novel that is a classic on your bookshelves.
