Description du produit
Quatrième de couverture
Real witches dress in ordinary clothes and look like ordinary women. But they are not ordinary. They are always plotting and scheming with murderous, bloodthirsty thoughts - and they hate children.
The Grand High Witch hates children most of all and plans to make every single one of YOU disappear.
Only one boy and his grandmother can stop her, but if their plan fails the Grand High Witch will frizzle them like fritters, and then what...? --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

Grandmama’s country of origin is important because Grandmama has stories to tell about her girlhood experiences of witches growing up there, Norway being some sort of high witch grand central. The premise behind her stories is to distract him from his sadness of losing his parents. This is marvellously dealt with because Grandmama’s stories sound almost too fantastical to be true until they return to Bournemouth, England, to honour the boy’s father’s will. There, the boy finds out first hand that witches are real, and that they are just as Grandmama has described them, innocuously like any other woman on the street except for their gloves that hide their claws, bald heads under wigs, strange eyes, and toeless square feet hidden in pointy shoes. And they are all out to rid the world of pesky children, who smell like dog poo to them.
I can see where David Walliams got his inspiration from in his equally engaging and endearing “Gangsta Granny”, but Dahl still wins hands-down for integrating all the elements of horror, the macabre and magical, together with the bravery of the boy and the love between him and Grandmama, the latter who never ever flinches or talks down to the boy the way you expect an adult to when speaking to her grandson, even when he is literally turned into a mouse by the wicked Grand High Witch.
An altogether lovely story to savour, and I’m glad I found the time to read it for the first time in my mellow adulthood, and still be able to appreciate the magic of it.
I liked the bit where the narrator was peeking through the screen in a hotel named Hotel Magnificent and saw the witches run their private RSPCC( Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Children)meeting.
I disliked the bit when Bruno the mouse, the narrator's best friend, died of old age. It was devastating and almost impossible to believe! I didn't like that bit.
On the other hand, I love this book and would recommend that anyone who likes magic and adventure books to read it.
The story starts with the unnamed boy narrator (at the beginning where the main characters are introduced he is simply called "boy") being told about witches by his grandmama. But "this is not a fairy-tale" she is telling. "This is about REAL WITCHES" and "real witches hate children." They disguise themselves as women and make children disappear.
The grandmother is funny because she is so un-grandma-like as she puffs away on her black cigar.
After that bout of story-telling the book sees the boy come into contact with real witches. Not just one witch though as he gets stuck in a room with about 200 of them. He has to hide but witches can smell children out, and do just that. This is where the real witching begins and the dastardly things they do comes to the fore.
All-in-all a classic Roald Dahl tale with the scary enemy potentially being anywhere, hence a child's imagination running wild.
The Paperback - It has seen many different covers and this one is just a good as any of the others, Quentin Blake still attracts children who seem to be able to reckoning his work anywhere. The print is of good side and well looks good on the shelf!
The Audio Book - Have listened to many different versions over the years the most recent being Miranda Richardson but no one did this as well as Simon Callow. With his you just loose yourself in the story and his take on the Witches song 'Oh where have all the children gone' is hilarious! The only downside it's abridged where the newer Miranda Richardson version is unabridged but I would still pick Callow's version ever time.
Kindle - The same as the paperback just quicker to download it if you children are demanding to read it as mine were. illustrations are just as great, a couple of typos but nothing the drastic. Maybe being an older book now it could be a little cheaper for the ebook but worth every penny none the less.
