The Witch’s Boy

The Witch’s Boy

by Kelly Barnhill

This title was selected for this year’s prestigious BEA Middle Grade Editors’ Buzz Panel. The Witch’s Boy echoes the best of Kate DiCamillo and Neil Gaiman with a richly detailed narrative that is engagingly lyrical and breathtakingly adventurous. After Ned’s twin brother dies, villagers are convinced the wrong boy lived. But when a bandit king arrives to steal an ancient magic, Ned must save the whole kingdom (with surprising help from the bandit’s daughter) by tricking magic (which can be very sneaky), befriending a wolf, waking giants, and surviving a journey through the largest, most terrifying forest in the world.
