The Witch's Boy

By Michael Gruber

HarperTeen, Paperback, 9780060761677, 400pp.

Publication Date: May 1, 2006


This critically acclaimed tale of a witch and her goblin-child is wholly original, and the legendary characters of old who touch their story -- Cinderella, Rapunzel, Rumplestiltskin -- are made new through Michael Gruber's imaginative lens. Gruber's literary voice is as magical as his imagination. With The Witch's Boy he has created a wondrous journey through the realms of magic.
