This book is one of the best Children stories I have ever written and encapsulates Roald Dahls style perfectly. Even adults will get alot of humour and fun from reading this wonderful story.

For its time it was ahead of the game when it comes to children's humour and knowing the way their minds work.

It can be scary in parts for young children however I feel this is handled well and only adds to thee excellent story line.
I have no hesitation in allowing the children in my family to read this story. And if we read it to them it'll will be even better.

All the excitement a child turned into a mouse! A witches conference, lets be honest whose been looking out for women in gloves ever since.

More info on the storyline, characters, cover, etc needed. I acually stopped at the same hotel that the Witches was filmed in. The Headland in Cornwall. It's a beauty.
