Izzy Attia is a bright and friendly 11 year old girl who has moved to a new town and just started high school. Unfortunately, she hasn’t made any friends yet and struggles with her studies due to her ADHD. She lives in a small flat and doesn’t have any siblings to play with. Izzy’s mum is always at work and doesn’t have much time for her.

She notices a huge, crazy looking house on the end of her street. After school one day, Izzy is running away from the bullies and has to hide in the house. Here she meets its eccentric owner, Agnes, who just happens to be a witch!

The house is home to an assortment of magical misfits who do not get along with their own kind. There is a cute but deadly fairy who always brings the rain, a dragon who is too friendly, a grumpy goth unicorn, a cowardly witch’s familiar and a mischievous forest spirit! Izzy realises that she fits in well amongst others who struggle fitting in too and comes back to visit them and play every day after school.
