Not content to win rave reviews and the hearts and minds of readers everywhere, Grunhilda, the Lunch Witch has launched her own website. Of course, as the graphic above clearly illustrates, you may want to be careful about clicking on her URL!
The new site enhances the reader experience from the acclaimed THE LUNCH WITCH graphic novel, providing more details on some of the characters seen in the first volume (as well as sneak peeks at characters who will be appearing in later volumes of the series). It also helps the reader immerse themselves in Grunhilda’s world with recipes for favorites like Dog’s Breakfast Cookies and Engorged Tick Scones.
Not convinced about the effectiveness of Grunhilda’s potions? Then you may want to check out the “Testimonials” portion of her website, where satisfied customers endorse her homemade remedies like the Donkey potion (which turns your annoying relative in to a donkey). The site really is the best way to interact with Grunhilda as the Gallery section highlights the unfortunate fates of some of the brave souls who have tried to track her down in person.
If you’re feeling lucky (orÂ just really need a Stink Eye Potion), why not venture over to thelunchwitch.com and learn a little bit more about “the hag with a heart”?
Just don’t say we sent you!
We’re not the only ones who are super-excited by yesterday’s release of THE LUNCH WITCH. Children’s book site Kidsreads.com has a special feature on the book including a must read interview with writer/artist Deb Lucke. Check out their site for everything you ever wanted to know about Grunhilda and her erstwhile creator!
