I bought this book for my 8yr old son but recommend it to anyone, - particularly any grown up who has had a bad day at work! It's absolutely hilarious. The chapter called The Divine Floradora is one of the funniest things I've ever read. Thank you Kate Saunders!

My copies of all the Belfry Witches books (they were originally six separate books) are all dog-eared as I read them to my elder daughter again and again and still come back to them with my younger one. We all love them. The plots are superb, the characters very likeable, but it's the rollicking humour that really marks them out, humour that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. These books are both wonderfully simple and really very sophisticated at the same time. Great for little girls having their witchy phase who've already read The Worst Witch books, but really a treat for readers of all ages and genders. I can't remember anything I've enjoyed reading to my children more, or that's had a better reception.

Format: Paperback
`The Belfry Witches' begins on Witch Island just before Skirty Marm, a tall and skinny witch with red flaming eyes, a wrinkled grey face and hideously bright purple hair, and Old Noshie, a short and fat witch with a bright green face that glowed in the dark and a bald head that she covered with a blue wig to keep it warm, got banished for singing a rude song about their mean old Queen Witch (who was very nearly one thousand years old) called Mrs Abercrombie at the Halloween Ball even though they weren't invited and the were drunk after stealing and drinking lots and lots and of Nasty Medicine...

I would rate this great laugh 9/ 10 because it is just plain great; I would recommend it to kids only, not boring old non-believing-in-magic grown ups, aged 7 - 12 years old.

Before people make any comments and vote for me or not vote for me I want to tell you that this book is absolutely excellent. My review is a short one but I could write and even shorter one with 6 words and you still might be satisfied.
the words would be THIS BOOK IS DEFINITELY WORTH READING!!!
