Dark, scary and magnificently illustrated, this is a new series not to be missed!
The great walled city of Hangman's Hollow is at war with the forest outside.
Into this war, one dreadful winter's night, fate delivers a skinny, helpless boy.
But maybe Pip isn't as helpless as he seems. Maybe he is the one who will defeat the wood witches and rescue the children of Hangman's Hollow ...
