The Itch Witch

There is no way the kids are going to have their hair combed until they realise the nits have been sent by the terrifying Itch-Witch…

The Witch, the Itch-Witch, the nasty Itch-Witch wants your blood

The Itch-Witch is a scritchy scratchy story that brings a shudder to all. Will the combs eventually triumph over the nits? What do you think?
