Isabella and Blodwen is the latest book from Rachael Smith, creator of Wired Up WrongStand in your Power, and the critically-acclaimed record of the Covid Pandemic, Quarantine Comix.

Isabella & Blodwen is a 200 page full color hardback with a trim size of 240mm x 170mm portrait (that’s 9.5 in x 6.6in if you’d prefer imperial!)

The story follows sixteen year-old Isabella who has been granted early admission to the prestigious University of Oxford. Academically gifted, but lacking in social skills, she finds navigating the hallowed halls a trial she can’t study her way out of. Mixing with older students, and struggling to find her place, she sets her heart on the coveted summer internship with her hero, Professor MacLeod. While wondering how to get the letter of recommendation she needs to be considered, she accidentally drops an exhibit from a museum she’s visiting in her bag… and Blodwen, the Witch from the Bottle enters her life!

After centuries trapped in a little silver flask, Blodwen is thrilled to find herself in the thick of things in a University dorm, and is determined to make the most of her newfound freedom. Isabella makes a number of frantic attempts to return the bottle, and Blodwen, to the museum and rid herself of this meddling witch, all foiled. After a night out goes terribly wrong, Blodwen and Isabella argue, prompting Blodwen to cast a terrible curse on Isabella… and life gets even more difficult!

Aimed at a young adult audience, and exploring themes of friendship, growing up, and finding your place in the world, Isabella and Blodwen is a story that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt alone and that the world is against them.
