Hearkening back to classic children's rhymes and tales of enchantment, The Pomegranate Witch is the charming and darkly expressive tale of a gang of plucky neighborhood children determined to get their share of delicious, ripe, red pomegranate fruits, and the terrifying 'witch' who carefully guards her precious tree against their increasingly elaborate attempts. With impeccable rhyme work and clever, engaging wordplay, author Denise Doyen offers a bewitching, satisfying poem rich with both fright and delight. Complemented perfectly by the illustrations of rising star, Eliza Wheeler, The Pomegranate Witch has the potential to become a modern classic.
