About the Book

Respect Your Ghosts (The Witches of Benevento)

Written by John Bemelmans Marciano with illustrations by Sophie Blackall

The fourth book in an exciting new chapter book series by John Bemelmans Marciano and Caldecott medalist Sophie Blackall.

Welcome to Benevento, an ancient town famous for its witches!

The children of Benevento have to be careful and clever to evade the clutches of such witches as the Manalonga, the Janara, and the Clopper, who hide in wells and under bridges, fly at midnight, and play tricks during Mischief Season.

Five cousins --- Primo, Emilio, Rosa, Maria Beppina, and Sergio --- share adventures and narrow escapes, and discover astonishing secrets as they outwit the witches in each exciting story.
