The Wickedest Witch in the World (RA8 IA8-12)
At last Old Maggit has won the Wickedest Witch Contest! She decorated her house with sweets and gingerbread to entire a brother and sister in, then locked one in the wood-shed, and made the other her slave. Well, that's what she put on the application form. The truth is a little - different! Brilliant revision of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+
