Toby has been absolutely itching to read The Witches ever since he picked it out during our last trip to the bookshop.
This was one of my favourite Dahl books when I was younger and so far so good. I remember being pretty frightened by it and one chapter in, my memories of feeling scared are starting to creep back. It’s really clever how Dahl generates the suspense in this tale.
I think there are going to be lots of ducking under the duvet moments for Toby!
