"Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens. Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity. Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison's seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don't quite go as planned, it's a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches' latest death-defying scheme." -- Amazon.… (més)

Full disclosure: I’m a HUGE “Hocus Pocus” fan. I was 10 when it came out and saw it in the theatre several times, and of course I had the VHS, I still watch it several times during the month of October, and I even have a replica of Dani’s jacket and several Hocus Pocus decorations and clothing. I’ve always wished for a movie sequel, and when I heard there was a book version out, I was unsure if I was going to ever read it, and reading some unfavorable reviews didn’t help my decision. But after watching the cast perform in an online benefit event, my curiosity won the better of me and I decided to give it a chance. ⁣
The first half of the book is basically a retread of the movie, with a few additions sprinkled throughout that hint at events in the sequel. I enjoyed reading the first part, as it was just like watching the movie all over again. The second hand of the book picks up 25 years after Max, Dani, and Allison defeated the Sanderson sisters. Max and Allison have a teenage daughter, Poppy. Poppy doesn’t believe in her family’s story with the witches, but she finds the truth out the hard way on Halloween night when an innocent game with friends resurrects Winifred, Sarah, and Mary. ⁣
I enjoyed the addition to the Sanderson sister lore with the character of Elizabeth, and seeing old favorites like Binx, however briefly. Also, the scene with the witches being baffled by an IPhone made me laugh out loud. There were a few things that I felt could have either been left out or changed though. The character of Dani isn’t given as much attention or updates like other characters, and one of Poppy’s friends is turned into an animal like Binx, and it felt unnecessary. Winifred also came across as more of the focus as opposed to Sarah and Mary, whereas in the movie all 3 shared the spotlight. The battle at the end also seemed to go on for quite a while and almost became repetitive. Speaking of repetitive, Poppy also has a crush on her friend Isabella and her pining after her and some of the comments she made came across as overdramatic. I get it, I was a teenager once too, but still...how many more times do I have to read the same inner monologue? ⁣
If you’re craving some more “Hocus Pocus” until the sequel is released, this is a breezy and silly read that brings back all the nostalgia feels. ⁣ ( )

I really loved reading the Hocus Pocus story. It stayed true to the movie but did have some additions to keep it interesting. I really liked being able to know exactly what Max was thinking. The additions also helped to set up the sequel. The sequel was fun and cute while doing a great job to pay homage to the original. It somewhat follows the same type of plot points as the original which did make it drag just a little which is why I rated it only four stars. ( )

Good, but the novelization was better than the sequel in my opinion.
Still worth a read but glad I didn't buy ( )

I’m sure most of you have seen Hocus Pocus – the first part of the book covering the original 1993 film didn’t vary much. The only thing that stuck with me was the addition of Elizabeth Sanderson and the other named witches in the book. It was fun reading a movie as a book even though I knew the plot and lines – I hadn’t seen Hocus Pocus in a while so it was even better giggling to myself about the movie lines. I may have missed new additions to the original story other than the names because I haven’t recently watched it. It is something I intend to rectify soon, I just found out my husband has NEVER seen it!!!!!!!!

I’m not sure if the author wasn’t given much leeway to craft her story but there were a lot of recycled parts of the original storyline. Isabella shares a lot of characteristics with teen Allison – her qualities that Poppy finds endearing are nearly a carbon copy of what Max found attractive about Allison. Poppy and Max both being the ones to decide on going to the Sanderson house, setting off the return of the witches. Allison’s costume choice as an adult being Lady Gaga (a modern version of Max’s mom’s Madonna costume). Katie Taylor cast as the class bully like her dad back in ’93. I think my favorite parts of the sequel was everything after Poppy and crew accidentally brought the sisters back for a second round.

I had higher hopes for the sequel than for it to recycle aspects of the original storyline. In my opinion, it would have been better as a complete retelling with no shared characters. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the “cliffhanger” for yet another book and/or movie in the new series. I’ve made it a point never to watch any of the “sequels” to main Disney movies and I will stick with it. Speaking of sequels… did you know there are FOURTEEN Land Before Time movies!? I didn’t watch any beyond the first two and that was enough for me… I can’t believe they’ve made twelve additional movies. ( )
