Description: This unique book presents delicious recipes from witches around the world. Every dish has one thing in common: the main ingredients are children! The text is written with a variety of voices, each more preposterous than the last and written to appeal to children, but with many jokes that will make this a hit with adults too. It is illustrated throughout with stunning drawings of the witches and their dishes.
Synopsis: This unique children's book presents 'delicious' recipes from witches around the world. Every dish has one thing in common: the main ingredients are CHILDREN! In the classic gruesome style typical of children's authors such as Roald Dahl, this book is a ten-year-old's paradise - filled to the brim with bogies, squashed frogs, zombie chickens and the funniest witches ever seen. Many witches have contributed, from Barfa Stew-Wart in the United States, France's favourite Mad Elaine de la Moustache, to Britain's very own Janie Groviller. Featuring a short introduction to each recipe by the general editor Esmelia Sniff (who despises all her contributors and also suffers from severe incontinence), each recipe drips with cruelty and will have every witch drooling with delight. The text is written with a variety of voices, each more preposterous than the last and written to appeal to children, but with many jokes that will make this a hit with adults too. The darkness of the subject matter is offset with laugh-out-loud humour and the absurdity of the witches' characters. Designed to resemble a witchy version of a modern cookbook, it is stunningly illustrated throughout.
