Description

This is a book about REAL WITCHES -scary, bald-headed witches who live in your very own neighborhood. They are always women and masquerade as your neighbor, friend or even your teacher. The thing you most need to know about REAL WITCHES is the fact that they despise children. In fact, a witch will use all her powers to destroy any child who gets in her path. This is the story of one very intrepid child who stumbles into a convention of real witches and gets caught. The way he survives and his plan for revenge are what make this story so unexpected and delightful. The Witches is one of acclaimed author Roald Dahl's funniest and most appealing books. This Recorded Book release is the first unabridged recording of Dahl's popular books available. An ALA Notable Book, a New York Times Book of the Year, The Witches is must reading for Halloween or any time of the year.

Professional reviews

"After listening to his grandmother's stories of witches, the young narrator of this hilarious and wicked novel stumbles upon a convention of witches at an English seaside hotel. When the scary, bald-headed hags discover him, he falls victim to their plan to eliminate all the children of England. But fear not. Dahl doesn't let them get away with it. He spins a plan of revenge that is unexpected and delightful. Ron Keith, a British reader, flawlessly handles the story and voices in a way that had me laughing out loud. His pacing is excellent. This is a genuine can't-put-it-down production. P.B.J. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
