The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) (part 9 of 14)
Miss Greythorne warns Will that since the rider was there when they time-jumped, he’ll be hunting them “through time” already. Will whines that he doesn’t know where the Sign is, and half a second later a window shatters to let in a horrible, ravening mons… wait, it’s a crow. Miss Greythorne is ready for it, and whips out a gleaming magical sw… er, a walking stick. She does the “speed-up-slow-down” thing, whirls around and whacks the crow a good one, whereupon it explodes into a cloud of feathers.

But wait, it gets better!
