Brand new series of six seriously scary stories full of humour with black-and-white illustrations throughout.
Hansel and Gretel's evil stepmother sends them into space - and into the clutches of the even more evil Space Witch!
These are fabulous short stories that will have youngsters who are ready to read short stories on their own lapping up every word and laughing on every page. Add the chaotic style illustrations and these are a sure-fire winner for any young reader. - Birmingham Post
