Oh, this brings back so many memories, I remember I used to be so terrified of the witches when I first watched it. I want to get my hands on the actual book. There's also Matilda I want to take a look at.

I love this book :faint:
Isynia-Artessa Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Great illustration! It reminds me of artwork by Mary GrandPre, who did the illustrations for Harry Potter. Very geometric in it's forms. I especially like the great witch's hands and how her hair becomes like creeping vines. Very well done. I could definitely see this as a book cover.

I remember when I first saw the trailer for the movie witches, I was scared for weeks before I finally convinced myself to read the book. Even had nightmares before...
So strange...the storyline wasn't so scary, but I was terrified back then O-o

I like the way the mood is put across.. with the sharp angles and what-not.. usually children's books are all soft curves and pastels. (at least the ones ive seen..)
SuperCutie567 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
