The Witches by Roald Dahl

I started reading this book because I was flying on a plane and needed a book to read so I borrowed it from my grandma’s house. I didn’t expect to like it but I actually found it really interesting and kept me entertained. The kid in this story had his parents killed when he was young and is now living with his grandma in Norway but soon are forced to move back to England (?) where they take a trip to this nice hotel for the summer. Grandma always loved to tell stories about witches to the kid but these stories were about real witches who always wore gloves and were bald. The kid loved these stories and was able to recognise the few witches he saw. But one day when he was teaching his mice to tight-rope walk he was trapped in a room with eighty-five witches. Grandma had told the kid about the Grand High Witch and the yearly meeting with all of the witches from that country and now the kid was stuck in this room during the meeting. Now he only has to figure out how to get out.
