THE WITCHES by Roald Dahl is the story of a detestable breed of Witches.

BEWARE.

Real witches dress in ordinary clothes and look like ordinary women. But they are not ordinary. They are always plotting and scheming with murderous, bloodthirsty thoughts - and they hate children.
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 . . . ?

Now you can listen to THE WITCHES and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!

And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Like Matilda, one of my faves. First read it in elementary school, and it showed me to be more creative and imaginative.

I adored this book as a child and love it just as much in adulthood. A less known classic of Roald Dahl's.

I liked this book because it had a very adventurous theme. I liked the part the witch took her mask of and showed her real face.

This book is great but if you wish to watch the movie..............................BEWARE it's really REALLY CREEPY! I loved the quote when he and his grandma say" My darling," she said at last," are you sure you don't mind being a mouse for the rest of your life?" " I don't mind at all," I said. " It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like so long as some body loves you."The Witches Hope you read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read this out loud to a class of first graders, they found hysterical (I enjoyed using voices!). The kids didn't seem to find it scary but, it had been a long time since I had read it and I found it terrifying!

Violence: Parents should note that the witches hate children and their purpose in life is to rid the world of them. The spells are not particularly gruesome, but the results and effects can be. Very young children might be too frightened and should not read this book without parental consent.
