A Couple of Classic YA Titles

THE WITCHES by Roald Dahl The story is great, but it’s the writing and imagery that will stick with you for the rest of your life. Dahl’s depiction of the thoughts, actions, and appearance of the witches is chilling! It’s tricky how he does it, too, since the book is also really, really funny.  Recommended by John.  Softcover, $11.95. FIVE NOVELS, by Daniel M.
