Product description

Roald Dahl’s darkly funny masterpiece, The Witches, now available as a graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning artist Penelope Bagieu!

Witches are real, and they are very, very dangerous. They wear ordinary clothes and have ordinary jobs, living in ordinary 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.

Graphic novel readers and Roald Dahl fans alike will relish this dynamic new take on a uniquely funny tale.


Our September 2020 Ages 9–10 Book of the Month

“I am so excited about this book! It is the first ever graphic edition of a Dahl classic and is my Book of the Month: a) because it brings a popular classic to life with beautiful art and b) because September 13th is Dahl Day! This is designed for those who have already read the original novel and want to revisit in glorious colour but also for new readers who find it easier to engage with fewer words on the page and need their reading confidence built up gradually.

Sometimes grown-ups think that older kids don’t need or like pictures in books but we all need a variety of texts and genres to keep us going on our reading journeys and being able to decode and relate to visual storytelling and narratives is a great skill.

For those of you who don’t know the original story of Luke and his grandma and how they battle with the Grand High Witch, you are in for a treat!”
