The Witches is a children's novel by Roald Dahl published in 1983. Critics have called the book misogynistic and protested that the book reinforces the view of women as cruel and manipulative behind the facade of beauty, even while winning multiple prestigious Awards. "I do not wish to speak badly about women. Most women are lovely. But the fact remains that all witches are women. On the other hand, a ghoul is always a male and both are dangerous. But neither of them is half as dangerous as a REAL WITCH". If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you will want to have on your shelf.
