The Witches is an award-winning story by Roald Dahl about a boy, his grandmother, and a hotel full of witches.

"This is not a fairy tale. This is about real witches." 

This is a book about 'real witches', the ones that absolutely loathe children and are always plotting to get rid of them. The Grand High Witch of all the World has gathered together the witches of Inkland for an annual conference at the Hotel Magnificent in Bournemouth. Their agenda is the elimination of all the children in the country and the prospects for their young victims look bleak.

But the Grand High Witch and her cronies have reckoned without the spark and ingenuity of a young guest at the hotel and his rather brilliant grandmother.

With an illustrated Quentin Blake cover as well as an exciting end section about Roald Dahl and his world.
