A true genius ... Roald Dahl is my hero -- David Walliams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Wonderful June 25 2014
By Milo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hi im ten and i love this book. This book is about how a boy and his granny travel across the world catching witches.
The pair were so loyal and exciting that you wanted to come into the book and hug them and say "Catch them! That ones a witch but that one isnt and all that stuff and completely jack up the book for all the other people reading it.
The witches are so horrid and revolting that you may want to give them a good hard punch on the nose.
But sadly, all you can do is read.

Great English Humor June 30 2014
By Stonebridge Snob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great book, funny read. Our 7 year old read this to himself and loved it. We have a very English sense of humor (on account of being English, I suppose) and this really suits our fancy.

This Is The Real Dahl May 19 2015
By Pop Bop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Every now and then you encounter a Dahl book like, say, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, that's light and cheerful and bright, and you think to yourself, "what's with this?". Dahl is dark and macabre and gruesome, with twisty humor and barely suppressed edginess. Well, "The Witches" is all Dahl, all the time. Witches hate children. When they turn a kid into a mouse he stays a mouse. Our boy hero is up against some particularly nasty witches, and he has to fight fire with fire. It's exciting and it's funny and it's gruesome and suspenseful and it's everything you love and expect from Dahl.

This is a nice choice as an introduction to Dahl. It's actually longer than books like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but it reads faster. Maybe that's because some books, like "Charlie...", have a lot of twists and turns and just seem busier. This book moves along at a brisk pace with a clear plot and straightforward action. That's why I suggest it as a possible first Dahl book, along with, maybe, The BFG.

So, while Dahl isn't for everyone he's certainly worth trying. And this is a nice option.

The book was cute I liked how descriptive it was. I would recommend it for kids who have big imaginations and this book will make them think.

Roald Dahl does not disappoint Sept. 20 2014
By M. Treiber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Roald Dahl writes wonderful books for children and adults connected to children. I've enjoyed the movie version of The Witches with a star turn by Angelica Huston as the Supreme Witch. References to the book itself in something I've been reading piqued my interest in reading the source book, and I was highly entertained. There's little sentiment here, just a straight-forward unfolding of facts accompanied by marvelous drawings -- I'm particularly delighted by the picture of the witches' feet with no toes. I have a couple of nephews who will be old enough soon to enjoy the grisly horror of witches and the idea of being a boy turned into a mouse, and I will be happy to give them copies of this book.
