While spending the last weeks of summer with her Great-Aunt Charlotte in the countryside, Mary follows a mysterious cat into the nearby woods. There she stumbles upon a flower that has magical powers and transforms a little broomstick into one that flies. Mary is whisked away, high above the clouds, and transported to Endor College – a school of magic!
Warmly welcomed by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee who believe she is a “once-in-a-century” magical talent, soon Mary discovers that all is not as it seems in this fantastical world.
