Join Alcatoe, the one witch of Plum Woods, create mischief and mayhem at the harvest festival!

Alcatoe, the one witch of Plum Woods, is always ready to use her mischief and misguided magic. When the village decides to hold a vegetable growing contest, the children are set to compete against the grumpiest old man in all of Plum Woods. They enlist Alcatoe’s help, and beg for a spell to grow the biggest turnip. But a lot can go wrong even with a perfectly simple turnip-enlarging growing a few arms and legs.

Will Alcatoe manage spoil the entire harvest festival, even if it means the Turnip Child gets turned into a casserole? Disaster, chaos and magical fun ensue in this laugh-out-loud illustrated title that is perfect for middle-grade readers.
