Product Details


Included in the CBC’s October 2022 Hot Off the Press reading list

“Lenkiewicz’ cartoon artwork in autumnal tones sets just the right witchy atmosphere, and the bobbleheaded turnip child and exaggerated figure designs are particularly charming. The cantankerous narration from Alcatoe is a nice touch, especially when, despite herself, she finds some warmth and kindness in Plum Woods.”

“…A a slice of fresh, folklorish fun. Those familiar with the Flying Eye catalog, best known for the troll-focused “Hilda” series, will recognize a kindred universe in Lenkiewicz’s witchy world…”
School Library Journal

“A story that trundles merrily along, eschewing scariness in favor of action, humor, and irascible revenge.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Readers will also be begging to know when the next Alcatoe story will be told—hopefully very soon, because this witch is a short-tempered delight.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Presented like an illustrated book but has the storytelling sensibilities of a graphic novel…There are several instances of droll or pun-laden humor with a high, hit joke ratio of about one per page.”
—Daddy Mojo

“Freaky and fun, witty and wild – a great graphic novel for younger readers.”
—The Great British Bookworm
