          In this book, Roald Dahl takes a turn with evil magic. The witches in it are not the original, somewhat-cartoony cackling witches in pointy black hats and fly around on broomsticks, magicking people with their wand, but witches that could be real. A little boy learns all the secrets about witches from his retired witch-hunter grandmother, but one day something happens that will change his life. A book of thrills and magic.

              This book is called "Witches". This book is about a bout a boy, his grandmother and a whole lot of witches. The boy goes to train his mice somewhere secret but ends up in the middle of the annual witches meeting with the grand high witch herself!! He hides behind the stage and listens until the end and just as he thought he could escape a witch smells him out! My favourite bit was near the end when Mr.Jenkins goes to shout at the grand high witch, and only when he had taken to steps, she turned into a mouse! I would recommend this to some one who likes comedy, scary and exciting things.

                      I'm sorry if this review is not completely accurate, I read this book over a year ago. A boy has a grandmother who is an expert on witches. At one point, The boy and his grandmother are in a hotel for vacation. The boy sees a room that is supposed to be reserved for a meeting and decides that while people aren't there yet, it would be the perfect place to train his mice. He loses track of time and realizes that the people that are meeting are witches! I would give this book five stars. Read the book to find out more!
