Then there’s Paddypaws the Pussycat, who wants to conjure up a tomcat friend for herself (but of course the spell goes horribly wrong), and the young lady of the lake, Nike, who only intended to give the Enchanted Forest lake a long-awaited spring clean – but ends up accidentally letting out the water!
