The Witches // Mini Book Review

About The Book
Witches are real, and they are very, very dangerous. They wear ordinary clothes and have ordinary jobs, living in ordinary towns all across the world — and there’s nothing they despise more than children. When an eight-year-old boy and his grandmother come face-to-face with the Grand High Witch herself, they may be the only ones who can stop the witches’ latest plot to stamp out every last child in the country!

My Rating

This was such a cute and easy read that you could fly through. Since this is some what of a Flossie, it probably doesn’t need much of an explanation. Nevertheless, the story follows a young boy who recently lost his parents and his eccentric grandmother as they have to face off against witches.

Honestly, the fact that it deals with grief and loss is sad. But, make no mistakes it is in general a fun and slightly spooky children’s and even tween’s story. Yes, there is a sad beginning but it’s not the main focus of the book.

“Children are revolting!”

The plot was fast paced, and a bit sinister, and the writing was great. The characters were likable, and although we didn’t get to know them too well, I don’t think a lot of character depth or development was really needed in the story.

Overall, I found the plot of witches turning kids into rodents great, and the book was pretty funny. The ending was happy (and different), but I liked it. And, I will say the artwork style in the graphic novel was beautiful. There are a few movie adaptations of the book that I would probably enjoy as well.

In the comments, let me know if you have read the book, or seen one of the movie versions. I hear the one starting Anne Hathaway is a little spooky. Before you go, give my blog a follow so you can get notified whenever there’s a new post.

I read The Witches a long time ago; it was fantastic and a Roald Dahl classic. I am so glad you reviewed it here as it’s such an inventive and exciting story!
