‘This is the entrance to the Witch Well and behind that door you’d face your worst nightmare. Don’t ever go through there.'

Night falls, the portcullis rises in the moonlight, and young Billy starts his first night as a prison guard. But this is no ordinary prison. There are haunted cells that can’t be used, whispers and cries in the night . . . and the dreaded Witch Well. Billy is warned to stay away from the prisoner down in the Witch Well. But who could it be? What prisoner could be so frightening? Billy is about to find out . . .

An unforgettable ghost story from the creator of the Wardstone Chronicles (Spook's Apprentice) series.

The story itself is not great. I have read every Last Apprentice book and enjoyed them. This 38 page book is not worth the $8.49 they are charging for it. Most other author's that publish a short story charge $1.99 to $2.99. This was a ripoff.

Joseph Delaney is the reigning master of middle grade "spooky". His LAST APPRENTICE series made even me a little hesitant to read it before bed (but of course I did anyway). My children and my students all LOVE his books, and I have no doubt that this one will be a new favorite. While it is short, it still packs the goosebump-raising punch that Delaney is known for.and the illustrations only add to that effect. I recommend this for all young fans of spooky stories.

I'm not much of a fan of ghost stories, but this one is pretty good. The first half is a little slow, but the book is also really short, so it doesn't take long to pick up. The ending is just what I hoped it would be. This is definitely intended for the younger end of the YA spectrum unless your teenager is like me and can't handle anything too scary. Most of the black and white illustrations are fantastic. Especially the ones of Netty and the prisoner of the Witch Well. A few of them are kind of awkward when it comes to foreshortening, but most of them are amazing. There are lots of illustrations in the book too; almost on every page. This is a good book for Halloween. It will appeal to kids ages 12 and up that like spooky themes and scary stories. It would be a great book to read out loud or to read in a dark room with a flashlight. Just don't give it to a kid that is easily freaked out because they might have a difficult time falling asleep after they've read it.

Good book! Cost way too much for 40 pages.

Very quick read. Had no idea it was this short when I got it from the library. Great story. Totally creepy. Loved the pictures also.

It was an extremely short story. Not worth even the $1.99 for it. It was a cute story, but nothing you could sink your teeth into. Kind of a predictable ending. Geared more towards a young teen.
