Wytchazel
Izzy and Jenny and Mum move into their new home in Wytchazel, and strange things begin to happen. Furniture is being moved in the attic. Mum doesn't believe them. Women in the village have long noses. Mr. Nutter, who owns the general store, tends Rowan Trees and makes broomsticks. ON Halloween night, their housekeeper, Mrs. Devizes, tells them the horrifying story of Alice Piggle, accused of wytch-craft in the 18th century and who, rumour has it, lives in the attic of the Wytch Haven restaurant and bar. Later, the attic door opens and the children see the eyes peering from the dark.

Blimey, Rick - you'd scare the pants off kids with these stories! Give them nightmares!

They're good for adults though: typically you, lol. Cynical, sarcastic and full of unexpected humour.

Thanks for sharing
