The Witches was actually a book I read after the movie with Anjelica Huston was produced I am a huge fan of her work, and when she appeared in this movie, I was fascinated with the story I d definitely recommend reading the book first as the movie takes the story so much further.
For one thing, the book has an unnamed narrator and grandmother, whereas the movie is very detailed on the history of the characters, the various types of relationships, etc But both were still very good.
It combines so many wonderful things for kids to love and to be scared of Witches who can turn little boys into well, I won t ruin the surprise Suffice it to say, This Is Not A Fairy Tale This Is About Real Witches Real Witches Don T Ride Around On Broomsticks They Don T Even Wear Black Cloaks And Hats They Are Vile, Cunning, Detestable Creatures Who Disguise Themselves As Nice, Ordinary Ladies So How Can You Tell When You Re Face To Face With One Well, If You Don T Know Yet You D Better Find Out Quickly Because There S Nothing A Witch Loathes Quite As Much As Children And She Ll Wield All Kinds Of Terrifying Powers To Get Rid Of Them Re read for our classics discussion Friday 10 30 Still had me giggling from the very first chapter.
M s como un 3.
El libro me pareci bonito Es el primer libro de Roald Dahl que escucho sin haber visto antes la pel cula, as que ahora s que no ten a idea de qu iba a pasar o de c mo se iban a solucionar las cosas Estuvo sobre todo MUY gracioso, y creo que tuvo que ver con las voces que hac a la narradora Cuando escucho audiolibros, todo suele ser muy neutro en cuanto al tono de voz, pero esta mujer s se divert a exagerando las voces, especialmente las de las brujas, supongo que porque es un libro para ni os aunque los m s grandes tambi n podemos disfrutarlo, jajaja.
Me cay muy bien la abuelita, creo que fue mi personaje favorito de la novela Y con ese final me dieron ganas de que hubiera una segunda parte.
I am not, of course, telling you for one second that your teacher actually is a witch All I am saying is that she might be one It is most unlikely But here comes the big but not impossible.

Down vith children Do them in Boil their bones and fry their skin Bish them, sqvish them, bash them, mash them Brrreak them, shake them, slash them, smash them Offer chocs vith magic powder Oh, thank goodness for the likes of Roald Dahl, who can combine the scary with the funny stuff and open a treasure chest of children s fairy tales with all the wisdom humanity is capable of which, of course, still is quite limited.
As a child, I was terrified and fascinated at the same time when I read this story, hiding it under a pile of other books before turning off the light at night I just couldn t stomach the idea of finding myself face to face with the witch and her friends in the vulnerable state between sleeping and being awake Later, when I read it to my own three children, my youngest cuddled up in my lap and
