The Story

Miss Wanda and her best friend Miss Willow live happily in Cobweb Cottage, practicing potions and cooking up charms and spells.


But one day the little black raven warns them that an intruder is coming. The witches look into their crystal ball, and sure enough, the wicked wizard Ilemauzar is on his way!


Miss Wanda and Miss Willow soon see through him, and, with the help of the trusty little black raven, hatch a series of plans to confound and trick the naughty wizard. 


A quirky, spooky tale of clever witches and a silly wizard, with a beautiful woodland set and handmade puppets.

The Storytellers

Melody and Marigold are two witches who live in a cottage nestled in the crook of a very old tree.


They love caring for their witchy herb garden and all the animals and who visit them there.


As well as brewing up spells and potions to help the animals, they tell stories and put on puppet shows to entertain their animal friends.
