      • content: maggies - A boy lives with his grandmother in USA since his parents died in a car crash. The boy’s favourite thing there is his grandmother’s stories about witches. A sunny day, she tells her grandson how to recognise a witch: they wears gloves, they wear a wig because they are bald and some things like that.One day,the boy’s holidays start and she wants to take him to Norway, her native land. Tragically, she gets sick days before the trip. When she recovers, the doctor sais she couldn’t travel that far so they went to a hotel nearby. In the hotel, there was a RSPCC (Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children) meeting in the hall. The boy of our story, meanwhile, had been training his little white mice in the same hall the meeting was taking place in. But unfortunately, when the meeting started, the boy realized that they weren’t the RSPCC, but horrible, repulsive, children hating WITCHES! If you want to know what happened to the boy, read this book! I enjoyed this book because it has suspense, fiction, fun, and much more! For example, the funniest part is when the Grand High witch talks because she has a very funny accent. It had suspense because the grandmother never tells why she is missing a thumb but the boy suspects that it had been done to her while she was a witch catcher. The characters all have many special features such as a missing thumb and big nostrils.Roald Dahl likes to exaggerate many features on the characters and for that he uses many adjectives and he mixes many features I recommend this book because I could almost see the horrible witches Roald Dahl describes and because I love all the “magic” within it. This is a great book for kids between 8 and 14 who love magic and fiction.
