A real witch is the most dangerous of all the living creatures. What's even more horrifying is that real witches don't look like witches. They don't ride around on broomsticks and they don't even wear black cloaks and hats. So how can you tell then you meet one? Read this story and you'll find out.

Review:

This Roald Dahl classic tells the scary, funny and imaginative tale of a seven-year-old boy who has a run-in with some real-life witches! "In fairy tales witches always wear silly black hats and black cloaks and they ride on broomsticks. But this is not a fairy tale. This is about REAL WITCHES. REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses and they work in ordinary jobs. That is why they are so hard to catch." Witches, as our hero learns, hate children. With the help of a friend and his somewhat-magical grandmother, our hero tries to expose the witches before they dispose of him. Ages 7-12.

From the Inside Flap:

Classic Dahl in an enticing, collectable new format.

?REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses and they work in ORDINARY JOBS.?

So you could be living right next door to a witch and you?d never even know it! Luckily, this story, about the defeat of the gruesome Grand High Witch and her evil cronies, points out the vital clues.
