by Roald Dahl
I read this book before and saw the movie starring Angjelica Houston. It is a very good story and heart-warming. The witches is about a little boy and his grandmother. When his parents die in a car accident, the little boy goes to live with his grandmother in Norway. From his grandmother, he learns that witches not only exist, but that they detest children and are trying to rid the world of them. His grandmother tells him how to spot a witch. So when the little boy encounters his first witch, he is saved. In his second encounter he is not so lucky. But that is not the end of our little hero. He triumphs over his predicament in a fun and entertaining way. This was a great read...again.
