In a new poll of 600 adult readers, the character of The White Witch was named the scariest of them all. The poll by Penguin Books was compiled to celebrate the publication of Mr Toppit, a novel based on children’s writer Arthur Hayman. In second place was Captain Hook from Peter Pan, and the Grand High Witch from Roald Dahl’s 1983 book The Witches took third place. Voldemort (from the Harry Potter series) was all the way down in sixth place. To read the whole list, click here. Thanks to Yellow Peril for the link.
