How To Avoid Witches

How To Avoid Witches

Summary

Inspired by Roald Dahl's spine-tingling story The Witches, we present the ultimate guide to witch-spotting, stuffed with fun activities, stories, jokes and more!

Witches are hiding everywhere in plain sight and want to rid the world of smelly children like YOU!

'For all you know, a witch might be living next door to you right now . . .'

It's tricky to spot them because they look so ORDINARY. They have ORDINARY jobs, live in ORDINARY houses and wear ORDINARY clothes. That's what makes them so hard to catch . . .

This book is the ultimate guide to bringing down witch-kind, packed with activities, extracts from the original story, games and bonus material.
