Marciano and Caldecott medalist Sophie Blackall. Welcome to Benevento, an
ancient town famous for its witches
The children of Benevento have to be careful and clever to evade the clutches
of such witches as the Manalonga, the Janara, and the Clopper, who hide in wells
and under bridges, fly at midnight, and play tricks during Mischief Season.
Five cousins - Primo, Emilio, Rosa, Maria Beppina, and Sergio - share
adventures and narrow escapes, and discover astonishing secrets as they outwit
the witches in each exciting story.
