Witches, terrible, miserable, witches!! They hate kids-all kids. If you read this story you will find out how to identify a witch. For example, witches always wear gloves in the winter and summer. They always wear a wig and they always have a long nose so they can smell good. So look for all these things when you're looking at people! Be careful, open your eyes and WATCH... I like the part when the grandma was telling how you can identify a witch because now I know what to look out for. When I read this book I was a little afraid that a witch might put a spell on me. This book also reminds me of my brothers because they like to scare me a lot. I recommend this book because it really scares the reader and I think kids like that.
