A thoroughly modern Witch…

This September we’re launching an exciting new series for 9+ year olds, Witchworld, by Emma Fischel – and today you can read the opening chapters for the first time!

Flo is a thoroughly modern witch girl – she has a spell stick, travels in her sky rider, and wouldn’t know a cauldron if she fell into one. But when her grandmother turns up on an actual broomstick, warning that ghouls are about to attack Witchworld, Flo realises that everything she’s been told about being a witch is just hocus pocus – and she soon finds herself involved in a thrilling adventure where old witchcraft and modern witchtech collide, with dramatic results…

With an ingeniously imaginative story from Emma, stunning cover artwork from Ottoline creator Chris Riddell, and a brilliantly bewitching new heroine in Flo, this is a fabulous foray into fantastical fiction for older readers – Sabrina with a smartphone!

Here’s a very first look inside Witchworld:
