Witch and Cat

I've finally been able to start on this picture book project - one that I've been wanting to do for a very long time. The text is a delightful poem written by my friend, the artist Diana Sikkel. We started collaborating on it about twenty years ago!

Diana is from Finland, and wanted to write about the Pääsiäisnoita, or Easter Witches. The witches gather together during the Easter season and fly on their brooms to Kyöpelinvuori mountain, along with their cats and their copper kettles.

But one unfortunate witch doesn't have a cat to accompany her - that is until she flies a little too close to the moon . . .

'Witch & Cat' is going to be a lot of fun, I think. And it's coming soon from the Red Admiral Press!
