Product description

Wow: so many deliciously frightening characters, including the truly terrible Grand High Witch. Roald Dahl’s most blood-chilling story is a transfixing tale to terrify and bewitch. The witches hate children with a sizzling red-hot hatred. They have sorcery in their fingers and devilry in their blood. On the outside, they look like ordinary women. They wear gloves to hide their sharp claws, and wigs to cover their bald heads. But these hideous crones mean to destroy every last child in the world. Can one boy and his brave grandma stop them?
