“The Witches” is a book about a child and his grandmother. They both know how to identify a witch. The Witches hated children and wanted to eliminate them as many as they can. Even though the child and his grandmother could recognize a witch, there was a problem. How would they stop them doing something wrong? This is a very interesting book. The story went so well that it is hard to put down this book once you start reading it. I loved reading this book very much.
