Janaras and Manalongas and Cloppers, oh my!

The Witches of Benevento follows the adventure of five kids in a small, southern Italian town in the 1820s.

My students love this new series by John Marciano and Sophie Blackall. Here are John and Sophie talking about Benevento, Pie, Witches and More.

The Witches of Benevento website is a treasure trove of information about the book, including artistic inspiration and information about the real Benevento, Italy. It also includes a Witchionary where you can find descriptions of all the witches in Benevento. Here are a few of my students' favorites:

The Witches of Benevento has inspired some incredible art. Check it out:
