Alcatoe and the Turnip Child, Paperback / softback Book

Alcatoe and the Turnip Child Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Isaac Lenkiewicz

Part of the Alcatoe series

Paperback / softback


Alcatoe, the one witch of Plum Woods, is always ready to use her mischief and misguided magic.

When the village decides to hold a vegetable growing contest, the children are set to compete against the grumpiest old man in all of Plum Woods.

They enlist Alcatoe's help, and beg for a spell to grow the biggest turnip.

But a lot can go wrong even with a perfectly simple turnip-enlarging growing a few arms and legs. Will Alcatoe manage spoil the entire harvest festival, even if it means the Turnip Child gets turned into a casserole?

Disaster, chaos and magical fun ensue in this laugh-out-loud illustrated title that is perfect for middle-grade readers.
