Mum had said November 5 was the last day of Witch Week. Witch Week began on Halloween and today was Halloween.

Family portrait of the Montana siblings a good few years before their appearance in Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci book, ‘The Magicians of Caprona.’ From left - baby Tonino, Rosa, Lucia, Paolo, and Corinna.
I’m not sure I managed to capture their relative ages, but gave it a go!

Haha I freaking hate drawing horses. They’re so weirdly shaped.

But Cat and Syracuse are such a great duo. I like how Cat will now forever be on the good side of woodland creatures and magic folk. Haha each Chrestomanci has his/her own crew…shoot now I want to draw him with Syracuse, Klartch, Tonino, Janet, etc. all a little older and looking super fierce.

I have no idea what Christopher would wear to his wedding considering how he normally looks. Still not sure how to draw Millie but I threw in a tiny sobbing Flavian! Yay!

Bringing this back for this year’s Halloween season - the radio play of Diana Wynne Jones’ brilliant Chrestomanci novel Witch Week! This mp3 was ripped directly from BBC iPlayer and the show doesn’t start at the beginning or finish at the end, but I’m sure you’re intelligent enough to work it out…

Christopher has yet to find out.]

Witch Week, Diana Wynne Jones (via a-book-i-read)

Old Francesco was so angry that he promptly invited all the Petrocchis to a feast. He had, he said, a new dish he wanted them to try. Then he rolled Ricardo Petrocchi’s letter up into long spills and cast one of his strongest spells over it. And it turned into spaghetti. The Petrocchis ate it greedily and were all taken ill, particularly old Ricardo - for nothing disagrees with a person so much as having to eat his own words.
