"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams Witches really are a detestable breed.

      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.
