The Witches by Roald Dahl

This is the story of Bruno, a young orphan. In 1967, he comes to live with his adorable grandmother in the small rural town in England. While the little boy and his grandmother cross paths with witches as seductive as they are fearsome, the grandmother takes our budding hero to a sumptuous seaside resort. Unfortunately, they arrive just as the Chief Witch is gathering her henchmen from all over the world.

Roald Dahl, born on September 13, 1916 in Llandaff, Wales, and died on November 23, 1990 in Oxford, England, was a British writer and screenwriter, author of novels and short stories for both children and adults, but best known for his works of children’s and young people’s literature.

His best-known works include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964), adapted several times for the screen, and collections of short stories: Bizarre! Bizarre! (Someone Like You, 1948), which won the Edgar Allan Poe Award in 1954.
