Lizzie Sharp is so sick of her grumpy neighbors ruining her fun that she decides to do something about it.  While her younger brothers watch in amazement, Lizzie decides to create a magic potion to get rid of the Potwards once and for all.  A few ingredients in a pot on the stove.  A secret ingredient, too.  Some magic words and then the Circle of Doom.  Of course, this is just Lizzie's way of taking out her anger.  It isn't real.  Or is it?
