The Witch in the Cherry Tree




Publication Date:

It's a damp and dull day, but in the kitchen, it's warm and cosy. David and his mother are baking, and the delicious smells bring a greedy witch to their garden. Witches love to steal freshly baked cakes! She is going to use every magic trick she knows to steal their scrumptious treats, but can David outsmart her?

A mouth-watering tale of delicious cakes and wicked witches from New Zealand's most celebrated children's writer, Margaret Mahy, with gorgeous illustrations from award-winning artist Jessica Twohill.
'Mahy's words are as deeply satisfying as freshly-baked cakes.'
'A good book to get children's imaginations flowing.'
