    Description


    The first book in an exciting new chapter book series by John Bemelmans Marciano and Caldecott medalist Sophie Blackall.

    Welcome to Benevento, an ancient town famous for its witches

    The children of Benevento have to be careful and clever to evade the clutches of such witches as the Manalonga, the Janara, and the Clopper, who hide in wells and under bridges, fly at midnight, and play tricks during Mischief Season.

    Five cousins - Primo, Emilio, Rosa, Maria Beppina, and Sergio - share adventures and narrow escapes, and discover astonishing secrets as they outwit the witches in each exciting story.

    Book #1
    Mischief Season: a Twins Story

    The Janara are wrecking the farm with their nightly mischiefs. Father blames Rosa for everything that goes wrong, and it's up to the Twins and their friends to find a way to stop the Janara. Will some mysterious advice from an unexpected source be the solution to their problems?
