‘The Witches,’ by Roald Dahl (1983)

Splendidly entertaining and absolutely charming from the beginning, Roald Dahl’s “The Witches” is surely one of the best examples of top-notch children’s literature imaginable. With vivid characters, genuinely scary set-pieces and the looming menace of its main villain The Grand High Witch, Dahl’s narrative gallops across an exciting, action-packed plot while also keeping its heart and core firmly rooted in the warm, loving relationship between a grandmother and her grandson. This is truly magical literature for readers of any ages.
