Revisiting: The Witches

We have a guest blogster today. Francesco from Year 7, has written the following piece about The Witches, by Roald Dahl.

Book: The Witches

Author: Roald Dahl

This year’s M2 production is ‘The Witches’ and it is going to be a good one. It is based on the novel of the same name and is written by the one of the most famous children’s fiction authors Roald Dahl. Now don’t think ‘Awww. I hate fantasy novels. Witches are magical’ this novel is an extremely non-fairytale version of witches and has an out of this world twist on witches. These are based on modern, real-life witches. I don’t want to spoil too much but these witches are extremely evil and vile and you would not expect what’s coming around the corner when you turn the page. This novel is about a boy and his grandmother who travel to England for a nice break and come across the English meeting of witches (RSPCC) which the boy witnesses. From there, the boy and his new friend Bruno and his Grandmother try to get rid of all the witches of England and get rid of the most evil witch in the world…The Grand High Witch Of All The World. It is truly a fantastic novel and I am sure you would love to read it. Gruesome and spellbinding you would not want to put this book down even for a second. If you want to do further research look on the links and watch the book trailer and even if you don’t want to read the book you could even watch the movie. I hope you choose this book because I have found it absolutely precious. You can find the book in the “D” section of the Fiction.
