Liesl lives in an attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Lieslís only   companions are mice until one night a ghost appears. It is Po, a lonely ghost looking for someone to be with. Then, thereís Will, the alchemistís apprentice. He delivers potions and magic to customers. One night, he bungles a delivery, switching powerful magic with something that is not magical at all.
