Pillywiggins and the Tree Witch
Julia Jarman creates an unforgettable character in the shape of a tree (and) the Tree Witch is beautifully illustrated in detailed black and white drawings reminiscent of old woodcuts in traditional fairy story books.
From the Author
This story has been a long time coming. For years, ever since houses were built on the field where I used to play as a child, I've had a vision in my head of a fairy ring growing through the carpet in someone's house. There was a fairy ring in the field - I never dared step inside it - and country folk do say a fairy ring can never be destroyed. What if that were true? The idea lay dormant then someone gave me an exquisite figure, a fairy doll, green not pink, and just the sort of fairy who would dance in a magic circle. I called her Pillywiggins, and the story started to grow.
