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 spell...like 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

If you're looking for something a little spooky and fun for the children this halloween then you need to pick this up. - Dapo Adeola, illustrator of Look Up!

Wonderful! Sumptuous, sweet and just the right amount of sinister. The Turnip Child is the root veg I am rooting for. - Jack Noel, creator of Comic Classics

There are a lot of fun witchy details to spot in the autumnal-coloured artwork, while the interaction between the children and the turnip child is charming. Quirky and unique, this will appeal to anyone wanting to read something very different. - BookTrust

“An Enchantingly Mischievous Graphic Novel for Younger Readers”

A really fun graphic novel for young readers. I'd say this would work for the 5-8 year category. Lenkiewicz creates wonderfully funny, slightly spooky graphics and a wonderfully mad story about a witch called... More
