Henson and WB to adapt Witch's Children

January 9, 2005

Jim Henson Pictures has teamed with Warner Bros. Pictures to adapt 2001 children's book The Witch's Children, written by the British team of Ursula Jones and illustrator Russell Ayto, reports Variety.

First published in the U.S. in 2003 by Henry Holt, "Children" started out a simple picture book about some misadventures caused when the magic of several witches-in-training goes off half-cocked.

But Henson Pictures producers Lisa Henson and Kristine Belson (Good Boy!) were taken with a more sophisticated pitch from Laws of Attraction screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna - What happens when a single-mother witch decamps from her magical and somewhat morally suspect realm to raise her brood in the safer, more kid-friendly suburbs?
