Publisher's Summary

As witty as The Twits and as enchanting as Esio Trot, here comes another rip-roaring, toe-tickling tale from the nation's favourite children's author. Plump up those pillows and snuggle down in your duvets, because the witches are coming.
Penguin presents a brand-new recording of Roald Dahl's classic The Witches, read by Miranda Richardson.
The Witches have a motto: One child a week is 52 a year. Squish them and squiggle them and make them disappear. The Grand High Witch of All the World is the scariest of the lot, but one boy and the grandmother he adores have a plan to get rid of the witches for good.

Really good to listen to

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would defiantly recommend this. its perfect to listen to on long journeys, and reminds you of your childhood with Dahl.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Witches?

When the cook chops off the end of the tail of the young boy who is now a mouse.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when the boy told his grandma that he was happy that he wouldn't have a long life as a mouse because he didn't want to live without her.

Any additional comments?

If you want something to listen to that's nice and easy this is it. I would say that sometimes Miranda voice is hard to understand when she is the high grand witch but besides that its brilliant.
