Original artwork from the late Jill Murphy, children’s book illustrator and creator of some of the most beloved children’s picture books of all time, including Peace At Last, Whatever Next! and Five Minutes Peace. Jill created the iconic Worst Witch series when she was just 18, which went on to become a television series and stage show, winning the Olivier award.
This is a published piece from the book ‘The Worst Witch’ (1975).
Artist’s note: “All colour is done with water soluble pencil. Even sneezing near it will damage it! Take great care when removing covers. It is also soft and smudges if you brush a hand against it!”
