    They call me Yanka the Bear. Not because of where I was found - only a few people know about that. They call me Yanka the Bear because I am so big and strong. Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered about where she is from. She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, wishing she was as strong on the inside as she is on the outside. But, when she has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond one that she ever imagined begins: from icy rivers to smouldering mountains meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way. Interwoven with traditional stories of bears, princesses and dragons, Yanka's journey is a gorgeously lyrical adventure from the best-selling author of The House With Chicken Legs.

    Roald Dahl's wickedly dark and devilish children's stories have sold over 55 million copies in the UK alone, so it's no wonder they continue to inspire and entertain generation and generation.

    The Witches is one of his most entertaining, yet disturbing, reads. The inspiration for a hit film starring Anjelica Huston, it reveals to young readers how Witches really are a detestable breed. They disguise themselves as lovely ladies, but secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise.

    Luckily one boy and his grandmother know how to recognise the vile creatures, but can they get rid of them for good? With Quentin Blake's iconic artwork also featured, The Witches surely ranks amongst Dahl's finest work.
