Malkin Child is my new book all about witches. But it's not about spooky Hogwarts or Roald Dahl - type witches - it's about real people who were accused of witchcraft 400 years ago. It's especially about a little girl called Jennet Device who's testimony in court led to her family and neighbours being hung for witchcraft.
Actually this is a true story. When I was asked to write it for the 400th anniversary of the trials this year I found myself wondering what would make a little girl testify against her family like that? To find out the answer you will have to read it!
