Don't forget the washing-up spell in "The Magicians of Caprona" - the orange 
spaghetti grease everywhere is one of my favourite scenes ever.  And Nan's 
descriptions in "Witch Week".  And Christopher taking the roof off his 
tutor's house in "The Lives of Christopher Chant".  Also in the latter, the 
gardeners' efforts at protecting the Castle, and the boot-boy's booby-traps.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
