Well if you don'Ning 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 yo Roald Dahl is in my top 3 of favorite children's authors I had read a few of his books as a child but most of my exposure occurred as a young adult and while in collegeThe 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 furtherFor 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 goodIt 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 can be a bit of a scary themeDahl's style is so embracing and captivating His characters are intense The creativity and imagination from the works he's produced over the years is uite astonishingThe Grand High Witch runs the show here and she won't let you forget it But it's the grandmother and the boy who may hold all the power A classic battle of good and evil with some fun thrown in betweenA definite read for kids And adults When I was taking a course in college on Reading in the Elementary School I had to read 150 children's books and produce a portfolio showing a lesson plan for each book Dahl featured in many of the lessons and books I had chosen as I tried to incorporate some Newbery and Caldecott winners but not all What a joy to re read these classics as a 21 year old thinking about becoming a teacher Though I didn't stay in the teaching field and possibly regret it to some degree I will always go back to these books and this time period as one of the favorite parts of life About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping bypolldaddy poll9729544polldaddy poll9719251

MOBI Ò The Witches ´ Roald Dahl

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 cun Warning Extremely Long Review and Childhood StorytellingWhen I was ten or eleven I was sitting in the playground at summer camp minding my own business and reading this book when one of the playground supervisers came and asked me what I was reading When I showed it to him his eyes got wide and he took the book from me Then he went to the trash can and started ripping it up page by page And he washed his hands afterwards to get rid of the filth It was a library book He was just going on and on about how young children shouldn't read about witchcraft because they might want to become witches etc etc If you've read the book you know that Dahl doesn't exactly idealize witches Well when my dad came to pick me up he let this guy have it yay Dad and I got a popsicle So the story ends well but I always remember this incident when I see this book And because of that this book is what I think of when I consider censorship and how detrimental it is to our society I barely remember what happens in The Witches but I love it simply because of what it represents to me

Roald Dahl ´ The Witches READER

The WitchesU'd better find out uickly because there's nothing a witch loathes uite as much as children and she'll wield all kinds of terrifying powers to get rid of them 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 After the tragic loss of his parents a young boy goes to live with his much beloved grandmother He soon learns of the impossible witches exist And they're sole joy in life is to find ways to make children disappear Preferably in nasty and mysterious waysWe soon discovers how to recognize a witch they have clawed hands which they hide under gloves they disguise their toe less feet in pointy shoes and their spit has a faint blueish sheen They excel at hiding in plain sight REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women They live in ordinary houses and they work in ORDINARY JOBS His fiercely protective grandmother does her absolute best to protect her grandson arming him with enough knowledge to recognize and evade capture of one terrifyingly normal looking neighborhood witch During one summer vacation things becomes significantly hairythan expected An absolute delight to read Dahl truly outdoes himself combining the right amount of sweet and scary The grandmother grandson relation was absolutely splendid Highly highly recommended It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like so long as somebody loves you Audiobook CommentsLike the other Dahl books this is a full production presentation of the novel Plenty of side effects and the characterizations were wonderful though the Grand Witch was a bit difficult to understand I felt like such an oldie by having to rewind it to hear what she said The Finer Books Club 2018 Reading Challenge A banned bookYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
