    We would like to recommend "The Witches" by Roald Dahl. This book is about a little boy whose parents died in a car accident so he has to live with his grandmother in Norway. His grandmother used to tell him stories about witches. The little boy (who doesn't have a name in the book) and his grandmother go on a vacation to England. They stayed in Hotel Magnificent which happens to be the hotel where witches are having their annual meeting! The boy goes to the ballroom to train his mice and the witches come in. They disguised themselves as a group called The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Once in the ballroom, the witches took off their disguise. We don't want to give away the rest of the book, but let's just say there are a lot of mice involved! Read this awesome book to find out what happens after the meeting in the ballroom! Out of 10 points, we would give this book a 10.
