Scousers, Sweets, and Separate Taps: Our Year in England

 

When the Olsens considered moving from the United States to the UK for a year of grad school, they thought it would be easy.

This comic book covers all the adventures of moving to an unfamiliar country, from the rocky beginnings of learning how to use different plumbing to the joys of trying every new food and making friends.

Convinced that there’s a better way to be a witch and gain the villagers’ respect, Moira wants to strike out on her own. She yearns to use spells and dazzle customers, but when a life-or-death situation is at her doorstep, Moira will discover the type of magic that truly helps others.
