The W-Files by Don Conroy
Published by Mentor Books, 1999
ISBN 1-902586-52-2
Illustrations © Don Conroy, 1999

Artist, wildlife expert and T.V. personality, Don Conroy needs no introduction to Irish children. In the W-Files he mixes a light-hearted, humorous story about three witch sisters Abbiewail, Grimly and Scarea, and their niece Hatti, with some interesting facts on animals, nature and the universe.

The W-Files by Don Conroy

The witches’ cousins, Flawless and Rosalind are abducted by aliens in Roswell, New Mexico and it’s up to Grimly, Abbiewail, Scarea and Hatti to save them and the planet!

Well-spaced text, complimented by the author’s comical illustrations, should encourage beginners to read the other two books in the Witches series, The Birthday Party and On Vacation.
