The Maid, the Witch and the Cruel Queen by Terry Deary

Everyone wants to impress Her Majesty, and what better way to show their devotion than by burning a witch themselves. But the witch , Old Nan is more clever and cunning than the townspeople and in the end, she isn't the one who sparks the ferocious temper of the frightful Queen ...Don't miss www.teary-deary.com - the author's own fantastic website with detailed information about all our books, plus others, about Terry as a writer, as well as extracts, quizzes, games and activities.
