Tom & Tallulah and the Witches' Feast

By Vivian French
Illustrated by Marta Kissi

A rollicking fairytale adventure full of magical mayhem, from the makers of The Adventures of Alfie Onion and The Cherry Pie Princess.

From much-loved author Vivian French and rising star Marta Kissi comes a spellbinding new adventure. After turning up late to each and every meeting, Tallulah Tickle has one last chance to keep her place in the witches’ circle. To prove herself she must prepare a mouth-watering midnight feast for the other witches in just three days – and there’s a catch. They’ve ordered Tallulah to make their favourite meals … but she has to guess what they are! Tallulah has always been a terrible cook and, to make matters even worse, wicked witch Gertrude Higgins has it in for her. With help from her little brother Tom, her trusty cat Sparks and a very chatty crow, can Tallulah cook up something special before time runs out? Vivian French's funny and uplifting story is brought to life by Marta Kissi's warm illustrations – the result is a charming book that's not to be missed!

  • A fresh new take on the fairy tale by a master of the genre, this is the funny, uplifting story of a brother and sister learning to work together – with plenty of magical mischief besides!
  • “French reminds us how fresh a fairy tale can be in the right hands.” The New York Times
  • Marta Kissi is a highly talented illustrator and animator – a rising star. Her first picture book Ready, Set, Mo!, written with Olympian Mo Farah, was published by Hodder to critical acclaim.
