A Practical Guide for Any Witch Or Wizard who Wants to Provide Habitat for Pixies, Nymphs, Faeries and More!
Author: Alique Iles
This book is about creating habitat for magical creatures in your own back garden! The sheer amount of information on such a wide ranging topic would boggle the mind of most witches and wizards who seem to know as little about gardening as a Box Fish knows about the deadly sting of an Occisor Musa! Nevertheless I have been compelled by the magical community to provide a sort-of guide or manual to help novices and expert gardeners improve the habitability of their gardens. Nymphs, faeries, sprites, gnomes, and fire toads are all rapidly losing habitat as the Mundunce population expands. Magical groves, woodland sanctuaries, enchanted ponds and rivers and other such mystical areas are bearing an over large burden, hosting all our untamable magical creatures.While MagiZoogeography includes a practice of putting such spaces under magical protection from Mundunces, we are under too much pressure. There are far more Mundunces than there are of us and they continue to convert wild spaces into fields of crops that are unable to support diverse life. It falls upon individual members of the magical community to take part in the preservation and creation of magical spaces.In order to help our magical creatures survive this age of hiding and fewer land reserves, we must make our yards magical havens. This book will teach you exactly how to do it. From garden design, habitat creation, the best plants to attract the most popular creatures, how to deal with issues of pest and diseases, and various maintenance tips. This book is an excellent manual for beginners and expert gardeners alike as I hope to open your eyes to what Ella Solani would never touch upon in her wildly dull 600-page gardening book "Nature Tamed, Grow Your Lawn with One Simple Potion". This is for the witch or wizard who wants to preserve our magical inheritance, and also needs some help dealing with the illegal offspring of magical creatures their children have somehow managed to breed beneath the garden shed. For a garden filled with life, potions ingredients and food, read on!

Funny and fearful true stories of witches, innocent victims and their accusers in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Curses that seemingly worked their magic and cures by healers that begot them the gallows. Emphasis is on Salem Village in 1692, where at least one of the 20 executed really was a witch.
