The Witches

The Witches - Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl This book was a lot of fun! I love that it took a ‘fear’ of some kids and made it real thing. Kids can be suspicious and if you pair that with an overactive imagination, you get get kids who think the worst about adults. In this case it’s women who are witches. Our unnamed narrator thinks his grandma is trying to pull a fast one on him when she tells him about witches. In the end, grandma was right!I don’t know why but I really enjoyed this book. Seriously, I’ve been trying to write this review for over a week and all I got as “I liked it”. I guess I’m a sucker for kids outsmarting adults. It’s a shame I didn’t read this as a kid. It’s also a good thing I never watched the movie because it’s apparently terrifying.The bottom line? I liked it!
