The Witches: The Graphic Novel


Witches are real, and they are very, very dangerous. They wear ordinary clothes and have regular jobs, living in typical towns all across the world -- and there's nothing they despise more than children. When an eight-year-old boy and his grandmother come face-to-face with the Grand High Witch herself, they may be the only ones who can stop the witches' latest plot to stamp out every last child in the country!


This full-colour graphic novel edition of Roald Dahl's The Witches, adapted and illustrated by Eisner Award winner Penelope Bagieu, is the first-ever Dahl story to appear in this format.
