Plot Summary

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details for the newly released Quests for Glory. You have been warned.

It appears in the book that Sophie is "personalizing" the School for Evil, clashing against Clarissa Dovey's way of doing things,and has nominated Hort of Bloodbrook as a history professor. (Hort tells his version of "history" in comics). We also get a sneak peek of what Agatha and Tedros are doing at Camelot by Agatha's letter, which is included in the story.

The book is also supposed to have extra sidenotes written in by Hester of Ravenswood, who came back to visit and found a spare handbook. Hester adds in her own unique flair by adding in her own school supplies, her ideas for being "the top villain in school", and even copying down Dot of Nottingham's list of best and worst things to turn into chocolate. The Ever Never Handbook is a wonderful companion to the original books.
