Magic and mayhem abound in this brilliant 'first day at school' themed story - winner of the first ever Roald Dahl Funny Prize! It's Gemma's first day day school and she's scared, so the witch's children turn her into an ogre to give her courage. But school is no place for an ogre, so what do you think the witch's children do next . . . ? Praise for The Witch's Children : 'This anything-can-happen tale is told with witty text and illustrations' - Guardian 'An exuberant fantasy . . . executed with wonderful humour and penmanship.' - The Sunday Times
