Community Quote

My little boy who is 7 is currently working his way through all the Roald Dahl books, and has this one on audio which he loves. He listens and reads at the same time. An audio book is the ideal introduction to a new author or to add extra interest in one that is already well loved. ... Read review

Fantastic Mr. Dahl does it Again!

AdvantagesExciting and descriptive - encourages the child to read too!

DisadvantagesFor the above reasons, may be a little too graphic in description for younger children

"...working his way through all the Roald Dahl books, and has this one on audio which he loves. He listens and reads at the same time. An audio book is the ideal introduction to a new author or to add extra interest in one that is already well loved. It has been a wonderful way of maintaining that bedtime story as well when he doesn't always want Mum or Dad to read to him anymore. This audio book was taken to school and has been integrated ..."

thumbs up for Dahl's toeless creations

Advantagesbrings Dahl to life, and truer to the novel than the film

Disadvantagesmay be a bit scary for very young children

"The plot? Turns out Witches arn't merely myth, but are in fact all around us, and focussed on eradicating children from the face of the planet. Wouldn't it be great then if a child was to turn the tables and get revenge on the Witches?... Roald Dahl in audio book form has got to be a blessing. With Dahl's book as popular as they are your child will most likely be requesting The Witches is read to them countless times, and so by buying the audio ..." Read review

About the book

AdvantagesA book for both children and adults to enjoy

The boy is taken in by his grandmother (who knows a lot about witches and what they get up to) after his parents die in a car crash. There is a great bond between the boy and his grandmother, a strong understanding that goes on even when the boy gets turned into ..." Read review
