The Witches: The Graphic Novel

Roald Dahl and Pénélope Bagieu | Translated by Montana Kane

Most people don’t know that witches wear ordinary clothes and have ordinary jobs. They live in ordinary towns all across the world—and there’s nothing they despise more than children. When an eight-year-old boy and his grandmother come face-to-face with the Grand High Witch herself, they may be the only people who can stop the witches’ latest plot to stamp out every last child in the country.

This full-color graphic-novel edition of Roald Dahl’s The Witches is the first-ever Dahl story to appear in this format. Graphic-novel readers and Roald Dahl fans alike will relish this dynamic new take on a uniquely funny tale.


Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian, and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryMatildaThe BFG, and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world's number one storyteller.

Pénélope Bagieu was born in 1982, a few months after the original publication of Roald Dahl's The Witches. She is the bestselling author of several graphic novels, including the Harvey Award winner California Dreamin’ and Eisner Award winner Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World, which has been translated into 17 languages and adapted into an animated series.
