This is an auction for THE WITCHES by Roald Dahl.

Illustrated by Quentin Blake.

From Wikipedia:

"THE WITCHES is a children's book by Roald Dahl, first published in London in 1983 by Jonathan Cape. The book, like many of Dahl's works, is illustrated by Quentin Blake. Its content has made the book the frequent target of censors. It appears on the American Library Association list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990 to 1999, at number twenty-two . . . The book's witches are revealed in the opening chapters to be a constant threat to global security. While they look and act like normal human women, they are secretly plotting to get rid of every single child on Earth. No other reason for this is given, other than a foul stench children produce for witches. A young boy goes to stay with his grandmother after his parents are killed in a tragic car crash in the Norwegian mountains when they are on vacation. The boy is comforted by his grandmother, and then she says she will adopt him. The next night, she begins to warn him about witches, which she says are "demons in human form", which seek to kill human children . . . "
