Roald Dahl keeps us laughing. Believe it or not, I don't think I could have laughed harder! My favorite character is the grandmother because she is so patient but she speaks her mind. The best part of the book is when the grandmother was telling funny stories to the children about what happens if the witches get them. This is the best part because it is at the beginning of the book and it hooks the reader in. The illustrations really helped me understand confusing words, because I could visualize what was going on. So trust me, you should definitely read The Witches!
I recommend this book to third, fourth, or fifth graders who love a fantasy by Roald Dahl. The Witches will make any Roald Dahl fan really laugh out loud!
