It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you





Next out is The Witches with a third of the votes. The ghoulish tale set in Norway and the UK as a grandson and his grandmother deal with child-hating Witches. It deals with many themes of other Dahl's work, such as story-telling and childhood but this time it takes that one step further as the story of the witches is all too real and sinister. The Grand High Witch is an almighty villain and the power of the grandson and his grandmother must do all they can to stop her. The ending to the story is really touching and while a children's book at heart, it's really quite daring and sinister throughout. It is frequently known as one of the more controversial children's stories wavering between issues of feminism and misogyny. But remember: "You can write about anything for children as long as you've got humour".

Deadline: Monday 29th February

can i ask why the twits?

(it's so bland!)

even james and the giant peach has a better story

but each to their own, right?

if we all liked the same books the world would be a boring place

I am the sole voter for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" I loved the film much more than the book, and the other books left are all-time favourites.
