There are witches EVERYWHERE. Witches could be a cashier in a supermarket, a woman driving a fancy car, or even your own teacher.

The only thing a witch cares about is squelching children. She hunts and squelches as many children as she possibly can. At least one a week.

The Grand High Witch hates children most of all and plans to make every single one of YOU disappear.

Only one boy and his grandmother can stop her. But if their plan fails, the Grand High Witch will frizzle them like fritters, and then what will happen?

  1. Laura

    “The Witches” is the story follows a young boy named Luke who discovers a secret society of witches and must stop their evil plan to turn all children into mice.

    The book is written in Dahl’s signature style, which is both playful and dark at the same time. The story is full of imaginative details and quirky characters that make it a joy to read. However, it also contains some scary moments that may be too intense for younger readers.

    One of the most impressive aspects of “The Witches” is its portrayal of witches. Dahl’s witches are not the stereotypical green-skinned hags with pointy hats and broomsticks. Instead, they look and act like ordinary women, making them much more frightening and insidious. The book also explores the idea that appearances can be deceiving, and the people who seem the most harmless can sometimes be the most dangerous.

    The character of Luke is also well-developed and relatable. He is a brave and resourceful protagonist who is easy to root for. The other characters in the book, such as Luke’s grandmother and the Grand High Witch, are also memorable and add depth to the story.

    Overall, “The Witches” is a classic children’s book that has stood the test of time. It is a perfect blend of humor and horror, with a gripping plot and well-developed characters. Although some parts of the story may be too intense for younger readers, older children and adults will appreciate its cleverness and wit.
