The Seven Sisters. The series “Witchy Travel Tales” tells the story of a witch called Miranda, who has seven beautiful daughters. “The Seven Sisters” tells of how Miranda and her daughters cross seven seas in search of a better home. One stormy night they land on the Seven Sisters Cliffs, south of England. The night they land on the Seven Sisters Cliffs a magical bunny that lives in the hills visits Miranda and helps her to build seven magical houses.
This book is the first in a series of books that tells the travel tales of the witch and her seven daughters, who explore the beautiful land they have arrived in and visit ancient sights throughout England and the World in search of magic. This is the first out of many collaborations to come with a wonderful writer who knows how important both magic and bedtime stories are: Sibel Beadle
Through the whole series, Miranda is going to travel around England while she teaches her daughters how to tackle with different situations, always respecting nature and without losing their sense of adventure. There is no need to say it is such an incredible opportunity for me to create a whole illustrated world with these characters and locations. Places like The Seven Sisters, Stonehenge, the Lake District and the Loch Ness will be the stage for these unexpected but incredible witchy travel tales, all of them coming out of Sibel's imagination.
Sleepless in Stonehenge is coming December 2017

Sibel Beadle started writing the children’s book series “Witchy Travel Tales” when she was getting divorced. She wrote her first story when her children went away with their Dad on holiday for the very first time without her. Sibel bought her eldest daughter a mobile phone so she could stay in contact with her. Every night her kids begged for a good night story and so at bedtime Sibel would send her children paragraphs of an imaginary story. Her kids loved the messages, the quirky characters and the story that unravelled every night so Sibel later compiled the various messages into her first book, “The Seven Sisters”.
Since then, Sibel has explored many beautiful locations in the World and has written stories about places she has visited every time her kids have been away with their Dad. Her writing deliberately tries to inspire and encourage children to visit these magical places. Her stories capture a real sense of imagination and excitement and try to help children deal with the real life problems young people face in today’s world, all without losing a sense of magic.
