The Grand High Witch of all the World has gathered together the witches of England for an annual conference at the Hotel Magnificent in Bournemouth. Their agenda is the elimination of all the children in the country and the prospects for their young victims look bleak. But the Grand High Witch and her cronies have reckoned without the spark and ingenuity of a young guest at the hotel and his rather brilliant grandmother...
Perhaps one of Dahl’s most recognisable books especially as the film stars Anjelica Huston. Beautifully written, Dahl blends magic, folklore and a tale (or tail later in this offering) to entertain the reader for a great many tellings. Ideal material for the young reader or one that can be read together to help encourage the young readers love of books.
I had an absolute blast reacquainting myself with this Dahl offering as well as imagining the fun my nephews will have when it is their turn. Pure Dahl Magic.
