The Witches - Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl

I could see kids squeeling with delight with this one. I don't think Dahl's books would be right for every kid, but for the ones who have the stomach for it, this is a fine place to start. My favorite line from this: "It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like so long as somebody loves you." Well now, that's certainly some good news!
