** spoiler alert ** The Witches by Roald Dahl is about a boy who lives with his grandma. After the boy’s mother and father died his grandma looks after him. The will the boy’s father left said he wanted him to move into their old house in England. So they do. While building a tree house a woman who the boys things is a witch tries to get him 2 take a green tamed pet snake. The boy was warned about witches by his grandma so he climbs up the tree until the witch goes away he tells him grandma. For the summer break they go on vacation to Norway and stay in a hotel. Little did they know that the annual RSPCC Meeting is held in the same hotel their staying at, the RSPCC is really the annual witch meeting. One day while trying to catch his to pet mice he goes into the meeting room and gets stuck while the witches are having their meeting. The witches end up sniffing him out but lucky he escapes and tells his grandma rite at once and they leave the hotel and leave the hotel. They finally get back to the home in England they try to stay clean of the witches. The theme was fear. My over all options of the book was that it was great very easy to read and very funny but scary at some times.

Mr. C'DeBaca Interesting choice. Roald Dahl was one of my favorite authors as a child--very British, very moxie, very entertaining. What do you think the book is about as pertains to the theme?

Chelsea Facison The is about the fear of witches and the thought that they really may exzist.
