In this collection of stories and poems about witches, wizards, and warlocks, readers will encounter Baba Yaga, Merlin, the witch from Hansel and Gretel, a Native American shape-shifter, and others. Here There Be Witches is beautifully illustrated by David Wilgus, and each piece is prefaced by an author’s note from the ever-popular Jane Yolen. “An intriguing and entertaining compilation that will appeal to young adolescent readers with an interest in the scary and supernatural.”--Booklist
