This is not a fairy tale. This is about real witches.

Grandmamma loves to tell about witches. Real witches are the most dangerous of all living creatures on earth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Read! Roald Dahl writes a very good book once again, but there are two things, redundant in all his books, that I really dislike. Firstly, the font. Call me crazy but if the book has a good font it seems much better. The font in 'The Witches' is terrible. Secondly, the lack of description. I know he's a children's writer but description never hurt. Anyway, a good read, captivating plot: 80% (that's honours you know).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wacky Witches Review This book is an excellant read for those who love to escape reality and yet remain assured it is real. 'The Witches' is a wonderful fantasy book, complete with neat drawings and a storyline that is sure to attract readers of all ages. When I began reading, it was slow to start, but as I continued, I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed putting myself in the place of the hero and the suspense grew as I ventured further into this book. I reccommend 'The Witches' for anyone who has an imagination. and if you don't have one, this book will surely get you one.
