In the little colonial town of Salem Village, Massachusetts, young girls began to twitch, speak wild and garbled words, and contort their bodies into strange shapes. Bewitched! cried the Puritans. This young adult book by award-winning author and illustrator Rosalyn Schanzer takes on the cast of characters of the infamous Salem witch trials of the 1600s. It deals with what Puritans believed about witches and the supernatural, the victims (but were they really victims?) of the witches' spells and tortures, those who were hanged as wizards and witches, the court trials, and much more. Combining a riveting story with artwork done on black and white scratchboard with tinges of bright red for a haunting look, this book provides an exciting history for kids.
