After a sneak preview during our Get the Scoop: Books and Authors Preview Party back in April, we’re excited to be revealing the cover of Victoria Williamson’s new book: Hag Storm! Filled with mystery and magic, Hag Storm is a spooky, historical adventure with a supernatural twist, based on the life of Robert Burns and one of his most famous and best-loved poems, Tam O’Shanter.
We hope you love the cover as much as we do! We were very lucky to work with children’s illustrator and publishing Master’s student Elise Carmichael to bring this one to life, and we can’t wait to see it in print. Hag Storm is out on 4th November this year and we’ve no doubt, the witches will be gathering…
The witches are gathering…
In 1771, Robert Burns, future national poet and folk hero of Scotland, has big problems.
12-year-old Rab spends all of his time doing backbreaking work on his family’s farm instead of attending school, but when he finds a hag stone in one of the fields, everything changes.
Looking through its circular hole, he sees witches gathering in a coming storm, and they’ve set their sights on his family. Can Rab save his sisters from the clutches of the witches’ coven before their Halloween ceremony in the old kirk?
