    The Witches This story is about a boy called Bruno Jinks that lived in England. His father and mother had died in a car crash going to Norway so Bruno had to live with his grandma in Norway. His granny told him all about witches in Norway, but she said that they were different in all the countries... When they had to go to live back to England and Bruno was in his old house, he climbed into his new tree house that his best friend Timmy had built. A young woman came and said that she had a present for him but he remembered what his granny had said about witches and told that woman to go away. Do you think Bruno’s granny was a witch? What do you think the witches are going to do with Bruno? Read it and you will find out. Don't miss it! I enjoyed this book because it is a funny and crazy book with a lot of suspense. Roald Dahl is a very creative author and very exaggerated. For example, if someone is thin it would be very thin and that makes it funny. He invents new words and those words are funny. I recommend this story to children who like suspense and who are between 10 or 20 years old because it is a little scary too.
