The Witches by Roald Dahl


“The Witches” is one of Roald Dahl’s many magnificent works of writing. The book is about witches who plan to wipe out the child population because of reasons you must find out yourself. It is from the point of view of a boy who has had many encounters with witches. It is a tale about children, witches, and lots of mice. If you want to know what I’m talking about, read “The Witches” today!

Thea Stilton and the Dancing Shadows

Thea Stilton Book

I like Thea Stilton books because they are filled with mystery and my five favorite mice, the Thea Sisters!  In this story the sisters help their new friend Carlotta, a fabulous dancer win the competition.  But first they have to find out who is behind all the pranks that are in the way of Carlotta winning.
