      this is my fave roald dahl's book! its about the differences of witches and normal ladies, and about a boy who lost its parents by a car crash. The boy learns about the witches from his grandma, who is a expert of these wicked creatures. This boy goes through many adventures which includes turning into a mouse and being risked to get its tail cut off, sneaking into a room filled with witches, and saving some school students that are about to become rats! this is a awesome book that you cant stop reading if you started it!!! Roald Dahl is a great author who writes amazing books for all ages, i think this book is very interesting for people who loves adventures, cool creatures, and loves roald dahl's books, like i do!😁 Will this particular boy stop the evil witches from invading the country? And will this boy be fallen in the tricks of the witches? Read this book to find out! hope you enjoy this book as much as i do! happy reading!

          This book has impressed me so it will impress you too. This book inspires me because it is the story that pops out from other books telling us to read it.

            "In fairy-tales, witches always wear silly black hats and black cloaks, and they ride on broomsticks. But this is not a fairy tale. This is about real witches." This is one of my favorite books! In the book, a boy is told monstrous stories about witches from his grandmother after his parents died in a car crash. He learns everything he needs to know about witches such as how they dress (they always wear gloves and wigs!) and how they despise children. "A real witch spends all her time plotting to get rid of children." One day, the boy and his grandmother take a trip to a hotel where a large number of witches (two hundred or so?) are planning a grand attack to get rid of children. Will the boy and his grandmother stop the witches? Overall, this book was great. I reccomend this book to all that love Roald Dahl's books.

                  That's very interesting and funny. I think every child will love it. Maybe some girls will try to be witchs.
