Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup
Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup tells the story of a girl named Yesterday. Having been born with the ears of a fox, Yesterday runs away from the circus one day and gets a job in a magical, walking teashop called Dwimmerly End. Under the tutelage of the flamboyant tea witch Miss Dumpling, Yesterday dreams of becoming a tea witch herself, and learns how to brew all kinds of magical tea - like one to turn into animals, another to read people's minds, and another still to soothe a lonely heart. But when a mysterious force places a life-threatening curse on her, Yesterday and her new friends in the teashop must set out on a quest to brew the only magical tea that can break the evil magic - and save her from a terrible, icy fate...
