A book of spells known as grimoire its a very unique and different kind of story This story is set in time when there were witches in this world who ate Children in breakfast lunch dinner and even in snack. But thankfully a small boy and his grandmother know how to stop these witches. The story is partly set in Britain and partly in Norway.

There are lot of humorous elements in the story and written in amazing rhyming style the story becomes more interesting.

This book has pretty , smart, dumb, funny and awesome characters.

The story gives a beautiful message that beauty is deceptive.

A perfect book to gift someone.
