Five Witchy Books

Since Halloween is fast approaching… :)

The Witches by Roald Dahl – My favorite Roald Dahl book ever (which is saying a lot) features some very creepy and nasty witches. Beware of women with gloves and itchy heads!

Witchery Hill by Welwyn Wilton Katz – A spooky page-turner by a Canadian author, in which a girl’s stepmother is truly wicked, though of course all of the grown-ups refuse to see it.

The Magic Circle by Donna Jo Napoli – Hansel and Gretel from the witch’s point of view. A look into her theoretical past makes her surprisingly sympathetic — and her end shockingly tragic.

Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski – One of the most fun witch books you’ll ever read, about a teen attempting to take advantage of her younger sister’s witchy heritage (which has passed the older sister by).

The Changeover by Margaret Mahy – A boy witch! Whom Laura must turn to, and awaken powers of her own with, in order to save her little brother. An intense and eerie story.
